Exercises – Tai Ji, Qi Gong

Tai chi and qigong are two mind-body practices that originated in ancient China. Practiced widely in China for thousands of years, both tai chi and qigong have become popular in the West. This might be because people of almost any age or condition can learn them.

Large, clinical studies on the health benefits of tai chi and qigong are lacking. But many who practice tai chi and qigong report heightened feelings of well-being along with a variety of other health benefits. A few studies are beginning to support some of these claims. People believe that tai chi improves the flow of energy through the body, leading to better wellness and a wide range of potential benefits. Those benefits include:

·       Improved strength, conditioning, coordination, and flexibility

·       Reduced pain and stiffness

·       Better balance and lower risk of falls

·       Enhanced sleep

·       Greater awareness, calmness, and overall sense of well being
