The Art of Tai Chi & Qigong
Qigong is an ancient Chinese system of body and mind healing through working with energy. It combines breathing techniques, gentle movement and focused intention to strengthen and cleanse the body, and to support smooth flow of energy and blood circulation.
Tai Chi is a form of martial art using smooth and seemingly effortless, yet powerful and dynamic movements.
Tai Chi and Qigong are unified on many core strands: both developed on the concept of Qi, governed by the principles of Yin and Yang, following the five element theory, practiced in a slow and relaxed manner, and both providing a wide range of health benefits.
