Tai Chi and Qigong for stress control and relaxation unlocks, what are for us, the mysteries of this ancient art. In contrast to traditional Western medicine, Tai Chi and Qigong recognizes the interdependence of mind, body and spirit. Its gentle exercises bring balance and harmony, and allow the chi to flow.

The ancient Chinese understand chi as 'life-force' and regard the free-flowing movement of chi throughout the body as essential for a healthy life. Stress is the major factor which can block the flow of chi, but the slow and gentle movements of Tai Chi and Qigong can remove stress and replace it with relaxation. Only when you are relaxed can you function at your optimum level.

Tai Chi and Qigong, on the other hand, utilizes the principles of non-exertion and internal energy exercises. It teaches the art of flowing movements and gentle relaxing exercise to gradually develop and strengthen the whole body evenly. This rejuvenates the body, and increases your resistance to disease and illness. It also keeps you physically fit, fluid and sensitive.

As a healing art, Tai Chi and Qigong is widely used by the ancient Chinese doctors to alleviate many illnesses.

On an artistic level, Tai Chi and Qigong movements can be used to enhance dancing  flow and movements.

In the area of personal growth and development the benefits of Tai chi and Qigong are fourfold: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

Physically, Tai chi and Qigong exercises develop your body to its natural potential of health and fitness, coordination in movement, sensitivity and balance. 

Mentally, this 'moving meditation' art, through physical control and stability, creates a balanced mind capable of making rational decisions and taking responsibility. The mind is active, free and spontaneous. Tai Chi and Qigong energy meditations stimulate and clear the mind. The flowing movements calm the spirit and sharpen the mental faculties, and the mind-directed exercise increases sensitivity and awareness.

Emotionally, Tai chi and Qigong is a stabilizing force because of the good breathing, proper balance and positive mental state it demands and creates. The physical and mental exercise gives proper channeling to our emotional energy. Further, Tai chi and Qigong stimulates and releases 'blocked' energy and facilitates positive expression. 

Spiritually, the philosophies of yin-yang balance which is central to Tai Chi and Qigong is at the core of all growth and development. The balance of yin and yang, of positive and negative, calms and stabilizes the mind.
