Qigong & Tai Chi for Balance and Fall Prevention
Does your fear of falling stop you from living your life?
Are you looking to improve your breath control and general fitness?
Have you ever considered Qigong or Tai Chi for improving your health?
Qigong and Tai Chi are self-care practices that have helped me balance the craziness of my every day stress, improve strength, balance and overall wellbeing. Those already involved in our Core Centering and Pulmonary Health programs have told me how much they have enjoyed our classes for the same reasons! It includes four baskets of practice: including breath, movement, meditation and massage. Our Balance and Fall Prevention form can be easily modified to all levels of fitness and ability so there are no concerns if this is new to you.
Let me review with you what Qigong is. The Chinese word for Qi is energy or breath. The Chinese word for gong means work or practice. So, Qigong is basically the practice of building and moving energy or breath through our bodies…all for improving our health. These health benefits include: “bone health, cardiopulmonary fitness, physical function, falls prevention and balance, general quality of life, immunity, and psychological factors such as anxiety, depression and self-efficacy” Am J Health Promot.2010 JUL-AUG; 24(6):e1-25
