Lightbulb Tai Chi and Qi Gong (Go With The Flow)

I had the pleasure of taking some Tai Chi Chuan classes many years ago which I enjoyed very much, here's some information about Tai Chi and Qi Gong...

Go with the Flow

Tai chi and qi gong are two gentle practices designed to keep your energy moving.

by Claire Sykes

In the world of Chinese philosophy, there is a force of nature that flows inside human veins and through the leaves of trees, between the planets and beneath the ocean, holding everything together and making it all work. It is called qi (pronounced �chee�). Within the body it journeys through invisible channels called meridians. But qi can become blocked by stress, illness and injury, which leads to more blockage and illness.

Maintaining the free flow of qi is a basic principle of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Two similar-looking practices, qigong (�chee-gung,� also called chi kung) and tai chi (�ty-chee,� also called tai chi chuan), join acupuncture and herbalism in TCM�s efforts to circulate and balance qi. Both employ repetitious movements done in sequences designed to allow the body to heal itself.

I don't why I rebel whenever Tai chi and Qi Gong come up. It must be ignorance because any type of exercise with these benefits would be awesome. Or maybe it's because there isn't a class at my local gym. I do love yoga though.
