Tai Chi, Qigong, Martial Arts and Meditation
Tai chi (also taiji) was developed in China as a very effective martial art.
When referred to as a martial art it is called tai chi chuan (translated as ‘grand ultimate fist’).
Qigong (alternatively spelled chi gung or chi kung) is a form of gentle exercise composed of movements that are repeated a number of times, often stretching the body, increasing fluid movement (blood, synovial and lymph) and building awareness of how the body moves through space.
Taoism is the specific branch of meditation I teach to help my students delve inside themselves.
The ancient meditation methods of Taoism have been used for thousands of years to help people cope with stress and the challenging issues of the times.
