What is Tai Chi & Qigong?
What is Tai Chi & Qigong? Tai Chi & Qigong is a 5,000 year old ancient Chinese exercise that de-stresses the mind and body. It boosts fitness, improves longevity and raises body awareness.
Tai Chi is a unique exercise due to it being performed slowly and gracefully with flowing movements. It is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for its defense training, health benefits and meditative attributes.
Tai Chi trains you to develop an increased awareness of where your body holds tension which gradually over time becomes integrated into your daily life.
There are 5 major styles of Tai Chi. Yang, Chen, Wu/Hao, Wu and Sun.
The Yang family-style T‘ai-Chi Ch‘üan is the most popular and widely practiced style in the world today.
Qigong translates as “cultivating the Qi” and Tai Chi as “the grand ultimate”. However, they are both ways of working with Qi. They both benefit health and are complementary to each other.
