Qi Gong/Chi Kung and Tai Ji Quan/Tai Chi Chuan
Qi Gong, a Chinese form of mindful breathing, is the achievement through practice of the skills of breathing and the cultivation of Qi, or internal, functional energy. The word Qi in Chinese also means breath. It is through breathing that relaxation is achieved. Tai Ji Quan utilizes a series of slow movements through which the practitioner becomes balanced, flexible and more responsive while less reactive to external stimuli. Qi Gong and Tai Ji represent a Yin/Yang polarity: stillness within which there is internal movement, and movement within which there is a goal of stillness.
