Tai Chi and Qigong to Balance Body and Mind The Livestream Experience

EVIDENCE-BASED ANCIENT PRACTICES 

Rooted in ancient Chinese martial arts and philosophy, tai chi and qigong are essential to balancing the body and mind. In this comprehensive program, Master teacher Yang Yang demonstrates the positive effects in these areas. In 2000, his doctoral study with adults—an average age of 80 years old—measured 10 years younger on tests of functional balance and strength. This program also revealed significantly reduced stress and enhanced sleep in a National Institutes of Health study.
