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.

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:
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.
