Tai Chi and Qigong
Mindful Movement for the Modern World
The practice of Tai Chi and Qigong give us an opportunity to slow down and relax. Tai chi originally developed in China and has been passed down through generations of Master Teachers. It is an oral tradition passed on from teacher to student. The movements are not random but are designed to affect the energy system and bring us back into a state of balance, inner stillness and peace.
Positive effects include:
Strengthening the physical body ~ easing stiff joints, lowering blood pressure, helping physical balance and coordination
Strengthening the immune system
Calming the mind and emotions
Balance the 'Energy' ~ the movement facilitates the smooth flow of Qi (Life force) around the body by way of the meridian system and through the internal organs
