Tai Chi & Qigong with Kathy Reid
Qigong is a centuries old practice that incorporates breath, movement, and meditation for the purposes of health, vitality, and calmness of mind. Tai Chi is also an ancient practice. It also uses movement and breath to harmonize the mind and strengthen the body. Tai Chi uses a series of flowing movements that work the entire body. Qigong taps into the concepts of Traditional Chinese Medicine to tonify and clear energy pathways. Both are often practiced at slow and even speeds, making them perfect for those looking for a practice that does not necessitate getting up and down from the floor.
