Qigong practice is an ancient system of exercises rooted in Chinese medicine and philosophy designed to cultivate qi – the life force that animates the body. Nothing is more important to health than the uninhibited flow of Qi through the body. Qigong are simple exercises wherein gentle movements coordinated with the breath and the use of visualisation help to promote the cultivation and movement of Qi in the body.
Both Tai Chi and Qigong are very accessible. As forms of exercise they are non-competitive, low-impact, slow-moving, and unforced. The muscles are relaxed rather than tensed, the joints are not fully extended or bent, and connective tissues are not stretched, so far less strain is put on the body.
A further beauty of these practices is that they are adaptable for any age or physical condition. So no more excuses, come on down to our classes, and begin the perfect activity for the rest of your life.
