Since the discovery of Chi, or “Qi” circulation (Breath, Life Force, or Blood oxygen) in the human body over four thousand years ago, Chinese doctors have devoted a major portion of their efforts to the study and manipulation of Qi. Their efforts have resulted in acupuncture, acupressure, and herbal treatment. Qigong is often compared to Yoga, as both systems incorporate breathing, stretching, and energetic movements designed to restore the body’s vitality. Qigong is the union of mind and body. 

Qigong taught at the Tai Chi Center is based upon 3 principles - proper breathing technique, meditation, and exercise.
