Gentle Tai Chi - Qigong Morning Class
Gentle Tai Chi-Qigong consists of gentle Qigong (Chee gung) stretches and Tai Chi (Tie chee) movements that help improve circulation and release stress. Gentle Tai Chi was developed specifically for seniors and people with Parkinson's but is great for any age. Because the moves are stationary, it is an ideal form of exercise for anyone that has balance issues. Moves can be done sitting if needed.
This class starts with 30 minutes of warm-up activities from the 4000-year-old practice of Qigong: Stretches, Breathwork, and Movements to stimulate/improve joint flexibility, circulation, posture, and relaxation.
The second half of class is the practice of stationary movements taken from the 2000-year-old practice of Tai Chi. Each movement is repeated 3-5 times to each side using either gentle forward-back or side-to-side rocking motions. These moves help improve:
- Brain health (stimulate neural pathways)
- Inner Core Strength
