Taoists consider Tai Chi and Qigong as one of the highest forms of Moving Meditation, harmonising Yang and Yin. In Tai chi you move through a ‘form’ in a sequence of movements like a dance. Whereas Qigong movements can be practiced as a stand alone exercise and cultivates excellent grounding and rooting. They both cultivate flexibility, relaxation, mind focus, correct breathing and effective to relieve pain and transform stress into vitality.
Qigong is an internal practice by turning our focus inward and relaxing your “Monkey Mind” (the part of your mind that’s always thinking)… and “tuning in” to the deepest parts of you that is a great resource for healing and vitality. This is known to Taoist and Chinese Medicine and Qi or Chi; in other words: your essence, your life-force energy.
