Tai Chi is a Chinese martial art that is gaining popularity in the United States, not only for its martial (fighting) aspect, but for its many health benefits including improved balance, circulation, flexibility, mind-body connection and awareness, and more. It is a complete system of exercise in which mental focus, breathing, and movements are connected into a flowing form. Qigong is the foundation of Tai Chi and has its roots in Chinese Medicine and Taoist philosophy. It imitates the movements of nature and is often considered a form of meditation. Qigong emphasizes the harmony and health of body, mind, and spirit.
In my health coaching practice, I teach 4 keys to optimal health: Diet, Quiet, Movement, and Happiness. When these aspects of an individual are balanced, good health and happiness abound and many ailments and dis-ease disappear.
Tai Chi and Qigong effectively address 3 of 4 keys to optimal health in a fun and easy way, allowing us to truly heal, come into our own, and move beyond our pain and illness. Through regular practice you will open yourself to another level of healing and living and transform the way you move through life.
