"Tai Chi, a branch of Qigong, has been practiced for over 2,000 years. Qigong has an even longer history, dating back about 5,000 years. Originating in China, these exercises are said to balance and harness qi (also spelled chi), or 'life energy,' and is frequently described as meditation in motion, as the activity takes you through a set of slow, gentle movements while you focus on your breath." 8)

"Preliminary data from one randomized controlled trial suggests the regular practice of internal Qigong coupled with group support may improve functional quality of life. However, the contribution of Qigong specifically is not known, and data are insufficient to form definitive conclusions."

"certain forms of Qigong can increase one’s appetite for food and/or sex." :o


:scratch: Best guess: Tai Chi may be the better beginner's Qigong for "mature adults"
... especially with daily focus on breathing and stretching. ;)

Amigo,
I was introduced to Qigong several years ago as a waker-upper before a work training. Thanks for the background history! I'm not sure if I realized it was a form of meditation, but it sure does feel like it to me! Liked it so much back then I added it to my morning yoga. I'm 58 and the routine I use isn't strenuous at all, really helps especially in the winter offsetting my little aches and pains. It's really noticeable to me if I miss out on a session for some reason.

"From a purely physical viewpoint the body needs to move and exercise to prevent problems."

Perhaps, any reasonable and frequent exercise (with good breathing and mind relaxation)
may tap into the "life energy" promoted (aka "marketed") by Qigong and Tai Chi. ;)

Hi Rod,
For me both the articles posted were very lengthy making everything more complicated. Obviously the first one was 'selling' a product. I remembered a brief experience with Tai Chi during a retreat training for a crisis center I was doing an internship for. It was a very spiritually moving experience, probably one of my first! Not something I was expecting. I cannot say that has happened with any exercise breathing workout I've had. Of course it probably makes a difference having an instructor in front of you explaining the moves as compared to just reading about it.

As with any spiritual concept I contemplate, if it doesn't feel right I move on to the one that does speak to me. I didn't have to pay for either of my sessions, but would think about it if the opportunity arose to participate in either of these activities.

Happy moving and breathing!
Kim

Dear Rod,
Thank you for all the links! Woke up this morning with a stiff neck and sleep deprived, when low and behold saw this post! I've been skipping my morning routine of Qigong and yoga for the past few weeks because of stress and health problems. I know the exact opposite of what I should be dong to help myself. Just moving and breathing along with some of the short ones has loosened up my stiff neck and back.

Definitely believe Qigong is better understood by seeing it in action((and you can't beat the price of online videos), although I keep a cheat sheet in front of me as a reminder of the progression from one movement to the other.

Thanks again for posting,
Kim
