About Tai Chi & Qi Gong:
Qi Gong: Not Just Exercise, but a Recipe for Balancing Ones Life
Qi Gong aids in balancing your internal life with your external life. Moving slowly, in a controlled way activates the Qi (bio-electric energy) through the body to promote healing. Because the movements are done slowly, without tension in the body, the circulation improves which aids in the healing process. It takes energy to go slowly in a controlled way and Qi Gong is considered to be a moving meditation, The practice of Qi Gong is the cultivation of the Qi energy in the body and the exchange of Qi with the environment and is accomplished through mindful awareness of body sensations and breath as one moves slowly in a controlled way without tension in the body.
Tai Chi is a martial art form done the same way as Qi Gong and is not just exercise. It develops self-awareness, self-acceptance and self –assertion through the flow of continuous movement. Both Tai Chi and Qi Gong IMPROVES COORDIANTION, HARMONY AND UNDERSTANDING and allows you to enjoy the freedom of experiencing the merging of the mind and body through the “felt sense.”
Qi Gong and Tai Chi have many health benefits, and is recommended for treatment of hyper-tension, arthritis, heart attack recovery, back pain, Parkinson’s, Shingles, Asthma, Diabetes, Anxiety, and Depression, and Fibromyalgia, just to name a few.
