|Tai Chi/Qi Gong:
Tai Chi and Qi Gong are the most common forms of exercise to regulate body energy and harmonize flow.
Tai Chi blends physical and mental exercises without putting strain on the heart. In Tai Chi, people practice form
which is a set of graceful slow-moving exercises in a definite pattern. A short form involves 37-48 movements
and can be completed in less than ten minutes. On the other hand, a long form can involve 108 movements and
will take anywhere from 20 minutes to one hour to perform. Essentially form movements are self-defense
movements and are practiced slowly to encourage relaxation and harmony between the mind, body, and spirit.
Tai Chi provides an excellent cardiovascular workout and can improve breathing, reduce stress, lower blood
pressure, and improve balance.
This ancient Chinese technique combines physical exercise with self-healing. People typically practice daily for
20-40 min by visualizing the qi moving smoothly and steadily through body while performing a set of slow,
choreographed movements. In addition to keeping people relaxed and limber, qi gong may also improve
specific health problems.
In China, Qi Gong masters can direct the flow of qi outside their body. They are able to move external objects,
such as balls, across a room or make people lose their balance.
