Tai Chi & Qigong for Health
Tai Chi is a Chinese martial art well known for its many health benefits. The slow, gentle, and meditative movements promote balance, increase flexibility and strength, and reduce stress. Regular practice brings about a deep sense of peace and well-being.
While some call it “meditation in motion”, Harvard Medical School calls it “medication in motion” for its numerous positive effects on health.
Qigong is a collection of methods used to cultivate the energy known as “Life Force” or “Bioelectricity”. This energy that runs through and around our bodies is meant to run smoothly and in good supply. When the energy supply is low, gets stuck, or is out of balance, it can lead to health issues. By keeping your energy in good order, your natural healing ability is enhanced.
In a world where life moves very quickly and information comes at us from every direction, it’s essential to find balance by slowing down and filtering out what is not truly useful.
