What is Integrative Qi Gong and Tai Chi

Qiqong is series of ancient Chinese exercises, still practiced today, designed to enhance one’s health and longevity.  Qigong can be practiced by people of all ages and can be done sitting, standing or moving. 

Tai Chi Chuan is comprised of a series of forms or sets , which when practiced correctly, will strengthen the muscles, tendons and bones; massage the internal organs’, improve the quality of chi and smooth out the flow of energy dissolving blockages within the body.  Since Tai chi is low impact, it puts little stress on the joints while still exercising them. It is, therefore, generally suited for all ages.

Benefits of Integrative Qi Gong and Tai Chi

Proper practice induces relaxation and massages the internal organs and endocrine system thereby reducing tension, assisting organs to function better, boosting energy and enhancing the immune system, resulting in the improvement one’s overall health.

Skills we teach

•    Mindfulness
 A breathing and relaxation practice designed to achieve a mental state focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations.

•    Meditation
Meditation can be defined as a practice where an individual uses proper breathing, coupled with a technique, such as focusing their mind on a particular object, thought or activity, to achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm state.

•    Zhuan Zhang 
The purpose of these standing exercises is to stabilize the body.  Muscles that stabilize you also constrict your blood flow.  With proper structure you align your posture correctly asking you major muscles and your bones to take your bodies weight.  This allows the blood to flow freely while you concentrate on your breath and mental presence. The practice is thought to strengthen the body's central nervous system as well.

•    Qigong
Qigong combines movement in conjunction with the breath which will induce relaxation, increase blood flow, massage the internal organs and the endocrine system; stretch and lubricate the joints; massage the spine, and circulate the synovial fluids contributing to the goal of robust health and longevity.

•    Tai Chi
Tai Chi Quan is often referred to as moving meditation.  It is used in China to overcome illness and to maintain one’s health well into old age.

•    Bagua Single Palm
Walking the circle has long been a Taoist practice for 1000 years. It combines the benefits of qigong with the cardiovascular benefits of aerobic conditioning.
