About the Event
The ancient Chinese practices of tai chi and qi gong (pronounced CHEE-gung) combine slow, deliberate movements, meditation, and breathing exercises.The routines were not designed to burn calories or raise yourheart rate. Instead, both tai chi and qi gong are martial arts that can help your circulation, balance, and alignment. They can also help restore your energy.
The low-impact moving meditations include standing and balancing. Although qi gong and tai chi are excellent fitness activities for beginners and people with health conditions, elite athletes also benefit from doing the slow movements, because everyone needs better balance and muscle control.The postures flow together without pause, making qi gong and tai chi look like slow, graceful dances that keep your body in constant motion.
The moving meditation is a very low-impact exercise that puts minimal stress on joints and muscles.
You won't be doing moves like crunches, but you'll be using your core muscles as you flow from move to move. Your arms are part of the movements in these gentle martial arts.
You do the movements standing up, so tai chi and qi gong do use your leg muscles, but not in an intense way. The exercises don’t include positions that specifically target the glutes, but those muscles will be working as you move.
Tai chi and qi gong use your whole body, including the muscles in your back.
The movements help improve flexibility.
These are moving meditations, not cardio workouts... When you do qi gong and tai chi, you're building strength in a subtle way. Your body weight is all you need. It's not about powering through muscular poses, but about engaging your whole body. The gentle movements put minimal stress on the muscles and joints.
