Following Nature’s rhythms, Winter is the right time to slow down and preserve your inner Life force (Qi). Thanks to ancient practices handed down through centuries (Qigong and Taiji Quan), you will learn how to take care of yourself and allow both your body and Mind to recharge, and to welcome a new Spring along with its rebirth, its creativity and challenges.
Breathing for the treatment of the body: how such a basic gesture can do this? Qigong (pronounced “chi kun” ) will take you back to the roots of existence, re-educating your body to breathe properly in order to re-establish a correct equilibrium. Qigong is considered the foundation for disease prevention and global body strengthening, through a series of slow and harmonious postures that bring vigor and well-being to all organs.
ABOUT TAIJI QUAN
Taijiquan* differs from Qigong because its practice looks more a gentle exercise rather than a routine requiring physical effort. This is true to some degree, as Taijiquan is indeed a super effective practice for keeping fit through moderate exercise, whilst increasing internal life energy (Qi).
*”Taiji quan” is the correct way to name this discipline, according to the official phonetic system Hanyu Pinyin – “Tai chi chuan” is widely spread as the English way to pronounced, although the words Taiji quan should be used.
