Qigong translates as ‘energy work’ and is an exercise of learning to control internal movement or ‘Qi’ (life force) within the body, promoting health, spirituality and martial arts training. It is an holistic system upon which practice typically involves static posture or slow flowing movement, deep rhythmic breathing, and a calm meditative state of mind.
Tai Chi is an internal martial art based on a concept of 13 postures, which develops physical and mental skills to help acquire improved health, energy and well-being. The term Tai Chi refers to the philosophy of the forces of yin and yang related to the moves, and is a subtle blend of the most refined medical, meditative and martial knowledge combining self-discipline, graceful movement and effortless power.
