Free qigong course!
Happy World Taichi and Qigong day! Here’s a little explanation you might find interesting. I filmed this with Commune — check out my course on the 8 Brocades for FREE! Link above. Have a great day.
Many often ask me, what the difference is between taichi and qigong, so I thought this might be a useful video, especially on a day like today.
Taichi is a martial art — it’s one of three main internal martial arts in China. The ‘chi’ of taichi is actually pronounced ‘ji 極’ — and is different than the ‘qi 氣‘ in ‘qigong’. Ji means polarity, and qi means life energy. It’s a bit confusing!
As an internal martial art, taichi is a practice that has martial applications, but also gives equal emphasis and focus to the health and longevity of our bodies, as well as to meditation and spiritual development. Qigong is a broad term that can include internal martial arts practices, but it’s primarily being practiced as a medical practice that supports people’s wellbeing.
Happy World Taichi and Qigong day everyone! Keep your practices nourishing to your body, mind and spirit.
