Tai Chi & Qi Gong
Week beginning January 23rd 2023
Tai Chi is an ancient form of mind/body exercise rooted in the unique Spiritual Philosophy of Taoism. This is best summed up by the famous Yin/Yang symbol which reflects harmony, balance and perfect relationship.
Tai Chi is a practical application of this theory and is therefore a perfect antidote to the negative effects of modern life. The practice itself involves subtle postural alignments combined with mindfulness training. It promotes a return to deep natural breathing which improves the flow of Qi [energy] to the internal organs.
The nervous system relaxes and releases stress, leading to a profound feeling of well-being. Qi Gong is a modern term for ancient Chinese Taoist exercises “Dao Yin”. The term itself literally means Energy Work. That is learning to work with one’s own energy, and also with the relationship of one’s own energy to others and the environment.
A variety of Tai Chi and Qi Gong movements will be introduced. Learn how to be centred and to release stress and anxiety using simple but powerful techniques.
As exercise forms, Tai Chi and Qi Gong suits all adults regardless of age or gender. Students should wear loose fitting clothing and bring water to each class.
Tai Chi is a beautiful healing practice of gentle movements suitable for all ages and fitness levels. It promotes mobility in the joints, improves balance and increases energy, through postural alignment and through harmonizing and strengthening our energy system promoting healing at every level of our being
