Taiji Shibashi Qigong is a form commonly practiced in China and South East Asia. It is a Qigong form that incorporates some of the best healing movements from Yang style Tai Chi Chuan.
Qigong is the art of working with energy, (Qi) which in Oriental principals is your life energy which runs in channels or meridians throughout the body. To the viewer it may look like slowed down aerobics but is in fact much more than that. The physical movements are there to prompt internal movement in the practitioner's Qi. Practicing the movement and simply moving slowly is not Qigong, the most important aspect of the practice is the internal flow of Qi. This is achieved through breathing and focus.
Consecutive attendances is not important and no prior knowledge is required to take part. The movements are easy and quick to learn, but improving on the correct posture and developing awareness of your energy (Qi) is an ongoing process that will never end. The more you practice Qi Gong the more healing benefits you will get from it.
Be sure to drink plenty of fluids following practice to prevent becoming dehydrated.
