The literal meaning of "qigong" is life-force ("qi") cultivation ("gong"). This term includes a wide variety of Taoist practices which aim to nourish, cultivate, balance and increase our awareness of qi (also spelled "chi") -- the energy aspect of our bodymind. Some practices include physical movement; others are more exclusively internal - using breath, attention, sound and/or visualization to activate the experience of flowing energy, i.e. "qi."
