Tai Chi & Chi Kung

 

 

Tai Chi and Chi Kung are a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine; however it has become far more recognised as an internal massage and martial art form since 1950 onward, when the empire made it mandatory for all Chinese citizens to learn it as part of a healthier lifestyle. Over the last 70 years, Tai Chi and Chi Kung has become popular with the over 50’s and those recovering from major life changing situations, such as heart attack, stroke and life altering conditions such as Parkinson’s and MS.

 

 

Everyone that facilitates, teaches or instructs Tai Chi and Chi Kung does it differently. Some focus on the Martial Artistry and teach the active contact sport, this form of Tai Chi and Chi Kung is the internal, passive and non-contact. The non-contact and passive form of Tai Chi and Chi Kung is meant to help cultivate and move Chi or Life Force energy through the body. If you search long and hard enough you will find there are different people in the South Lanarkshire Area, where I am based. However I tend to believe that mindfulness, imagination and intuition have their roles to play within both.

My classes and style of teaching is relaxed, informal and solely focused on the people in the class rather than a set curriculum or format of teaching. If anything I will have a plan laid out but I am also open to seeing what happens at the time as well. It was how I have been taught to work with these wonderful healing arts.
