Qigong (Chi Kung) refers to a wider range of practices – which includes Tai Chi exercises, standing postures, movement & breathing exercises and meditation – with the aim of cultivating and balancing health and life energy (Qi). 

Benefits – Regular practice of Tai Chi & Qigong promotes general wellbeing through relaxation, body awareness, balance, posture, mobility, co-ordination, strength and stamina. As a mind-body practice, Tai Chi & Qigong can be approached as a mindful movement or moving meditation practice. These practices are increasingly recommended by health professionals and supported by research indicating numerous health benefits.
