Tai Chi consists of a series of soft, relaxed, slow movements combined into a sequence called a form.
It is recognised as being good for stress, body posture, blood pressure and general health.
It helps bring calmness, relaxation, fluidity and balance to the body, mind and emotions.
Qi Gong means life-energy exercise or training. It consists of a wide range of moving postures designed to promote health and well-being.
It differs from tai chi in that the postures / movements are often self contained and not linked together into a sequence/ form.
Its best to wear soft clothing in which its easy to move when doing tai chi and qi gong eg. tracksuit bottoms or easy fit cotton trousers,T-shirt (traditionally long sleeves are worn) and gym shoes with flat thin soles. Also bring something warm if the weather is cool.
