"Tai chi is often described as 'meditation in motion,' but it might well be called 'medication in motion.' There is growing evidence that this mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems."
"The face of exercise is changing in America. Instead of relentlessly pursuing a sculptured physique, people are chasing longevity, stress reduction and improved health through mind-body practices like qigong."
A new study published in the Journal of the American Geriatric Society describes the "striking immunity-boosting effect" of Tai Chi. Tai Chi "builds aerobic conditioning, relaxes the body's response to stress, which tends to intensify as people age, and increases the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain."
Qigong and Tai Chi are moving meditations which use slow graceful movements and controlled breathing techniques to strengthen your mind-body connection, reduce stress, and improve circulation thereby enhancing your overall health.
The Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi (IIQTC) was founded in the spirit of the new millennium in 2000 by Dr. Roger Jahnke. The Institute's Qigong and Tai Chi training programs make Qigong and Tai Chi enjoyable and accessible for everyone.
