Qigong is a system of moving meditation that employs coordinated movement with intentional breathing and calm focused awareness. Each Qigong movement is repeated to strengthen the body and stimulate organs and glands as well to deepen meditative attention.
Tai chi is a mind-body practice that involves a series of slow, flowing exercises that combine movement, meditation, and rhythmic breathing. The practice of Tai Chi is based on traditional Chinese marshal arts forms but sublimates those postures into a moving meditation. Tai chi movements can help stimulate the flow of vital energy known as "chi" and in turn, the practice promotes a calmer nervousness system and one’s general health and well-being.
