What is Qigong and Tai Chi?

Qigong (pronounced chee-gung) and Tai Chi (pronounced tie chee) are exercises and healing techniques that were developed centuries ago by Chinese masters. They comprise gentle movements, controlled breathing and meditation practices and are generally done standing or adjusted as “sitting or lying down” practices for people with impairments.

Qi is life force energy. Gong means to work. So Qigong is the practice of restoring the body and dissolving energy blockages, bringing unity between body, mind, breath and spirit through strengthening the natural flow of life force energy.

In addition to all the benefits offered through practicing Qigong, Tai Chi also incorporates the energy of martial intent, which is practiced to develop skills for protection and self-defense.

What are the benefits of practising Qigong and Tai Chi regularly?

-Increased life force energy (Qi) for overall vitality and wellbeing

-Strengthened immune system and organs

-Improved physical fitness, flexibility and breathing

-Toned and strengthened muscles thereby releasing knots and tension

-Relaxed and regulated central nervous system, thereby releasing physical and emotional stress

-Increased mental clarity, focus, resilience, calmness, inner peace and wisdom

-Increased mindful awareness and connection with ourselves and life, being present in the precious Now

-Fast-tracked the recovery from adrenaline burn-out

-Improved management of anxiety, depression, pain and chronic health problems

-Increased longevity

-More integrated body-mind-heart-breath-spirit
