MOVEMENT THERAPIES. Tai Chi

Tai Chi Qigong - What Is It?

Many people have heard of Tai Chi and conjure up an image in their minds when they think of it. Qigong is a style of Tai Chi and translates as 'energy' (Qi) 'work' (Gong).

The tradition of Qigong practised by Club Chi is Medical Qigong, from which the Shibashi set is derived. Tai Chi Qigong calms, stimulates, revitalises, relaxes, re-balances and strengthens - it encompasses the yin and yang of all things.

Tai Chi Qigong is a Healing Art and the Chinese will perform Qigong to help with a range of health-related issues, including: insomnia, indigestion, lethargy, mental exhaustion, depression and anxiety, rheumatism and arthritis.

​Visit the CLUB CHI website to find out more and to book yourself onto one of the sessions currently on offer.

There are currently 3 sessions on offer in 2020. These are:

  • 12.15pm on Wednesdays at Langley Village Hall
  • 10am on Thursdays at Southcote Proactive Healthcare
  • 7pm on Thursdays at Party Pod (this session is Club Chi ... for the Dance Generation)

  • Who Can It Help?

    The movements within Tai Chi Qigong are performed slowly and gently, yet teach your body balance and co-ordination. The softness of each movement in Qigong moves away from the Western approach of 'no pain, no gain' and feeling you must push yourself to the limits to gain benefit. Tai Chi Qigong focuses on strengthening the body evenly - both inside and out.

    The 3 aspects of Tai Chi Qigong are meditation, movement and breathing. The movements are 'energy meditations' which are therapeutic as they calm yet refresh the body and mind. Additional positives of Tai Chi Qigong are:

  • Relaxes the body and mind
  • Calms the nervous system
  • Loosens stiff joints
  • Aids digestion
  • Relaxes tight muscles and tones muscles
  • Improves circulation
  • Regain balance: physically, mentally and emotionally


  • When performing Tai Chi Qigong and having focus on the gentle movements, it acts to calm the mind and quiet the 'chatter'. Additionally, where some find static, seated meditation more difficult, the movement element of Tai Chi Qigong and it being easy to learn, makes it a complete wellbeing experience for all.


    Is Tai Chi Qigong for Me?

    Tai Chi Qigong is for EVERYONE! Male, Female, the young or more mature - Tai Chi Qigong is for all ages and abilities.
