Qigong & Tai Chi

Two women practicing tai chi

Qigong and Tai Chi are meditative movement-based practices that strengthen the mind-body connection and improve mobility, flexibility, and balance.

Tai Chi and Qigong incorporate meditation and breathwork with slow, low-impact, continuous movement.

Practicing these exercises has been shown to improve cardiovascular circulation, decrease arthritis and joint pain, improve high blood pressure, and lower cholesterol levels. Tai Chi, specifically, improves balance and prevents falls in the elderly population.
