Tai Chi - Qigong
Tai Chi is a 4,000 year-old practice and one of the best known martial arts of the Internal systems from ancient China based on Qigong and Taoist principles. Tai Chi originates from qigong, a discipline that has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine.
Tai Chi is often referred to as “meditation in motion” and involves a series of slow, meditative body movements and is one of the most effective exercises for the health of mind and body. It promotes healing by integrating a meditative combination of movement, controlled breathing, sound, and visualization. Tai Chi can be easily integrated into your daily life.
Qigong (“Chee -gung”) is a way of cultivating and harnessing “life force” energy for health and healing, martial arts and peace of mind.
