Tai Chi and Qigong are very much alike and share most of their principles and concepts. I will therefore refer to both together.
The Chinese believe that once Tai Chi is practised correctly you will gain the pliability of a child, the health of a lumberjack and the peace of mind of a sage – quite an attractive combination and a good one to have these days. As we live longer, we face the challenge of quality of life more than ever before.
Tai Chi is not a religion but it is based and influenced by Taoist principles, the theory of Ying and Yang being at the heart of it. Taoism describes a way, path or method to maintain harmony and balance with the natural order.
During the practice of Tai Chi – Qigong, you harness the body’s internal energy (Chi) and through the gentle movements performed in the form, generate the conditions for Chi to circulate freely within the body. Regular practice will increase your level
of energy, improve health and help prevent illness.
What will I gain from correct regular practise?
- Healthier internal organs
- A stronger and more robust body from within.
- A clearer mind
- A better posture
- Better balance
- You will feel more grounded
- Improve high blood pressure anomalies
- Improve respiratory conditions such as asthma
- Develop a powerful antidote to stress
- You feel more relaxed, refreshed and revitalised
- You will become more tolerant, self-confident and happier with life
- And last but not least you will hopefully have lots of fun in the process
