Tai Chi and Qi Gong Basics
Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese martial art that enhances agility and power. Qi Gong is a Chinese health system that’s been practised for centuries to improve mental and physical awareness. Taught by Matthew Cohen, a martial-arts master with 30 years experience, these two programmes cultivate strength and tranquility in the mind and body.
The Tai Chi programme contains three segments. First, you’ll learn the essential poses of Tai Chi. Next, you’ll move through the postures to create harmony and grace while increasing flexibility and endurance. Finally, you’ll put it all together to build overall muscle tone and promote vigour and vitality.
The Qi Gong programme conditions the body and expands the senses through slow, natural, repetitive movements. You’ll stimulate your immune system and gain a sense of balance and inner calm with this healing practise.
Step-By-Step Tai Chi
A daily ritual practiced by millions all over the globe, Tai Chi offers a wealth of health benefits. The low-impact, flowing movements sharpen the mind and strengthen the body, reducing stress and increasing flexibility. Regular practice can help lower blood pressure, relieve chronic pain and improve sleep. If you’re an athlete, you’ll find that Tai Chi improves your focus and endurance. But to get the most out of a Tai Chi practice, expert instruction from the start is key.
So is the ability to repeat sections over and over until they are second nature. International martial arts champion Tiffany Chen learned this 60-movement Yang-form practice from her father, Grandmaster William C.C. Chen. Her expertise and the unique features of this DVD make it ideal for beginners or others wanting to improve their practice.
Qi Gong - Fire & Water
Qi Gong (CHEE-gong) is an ancient Chinese health system that promotes mental and physical balance and a feeling of calm vitality. Millions of people have discovered the amazing benefits of these simple standing exercises, breathing and slow repetitive natural movements.
Filmed amid the beauty of California’s Alabama hills, developed and taught by Chinese martial arts and Qi Gong expert Matthew Cohen, these two 40-minute programmes cultivate calm, balanced energy and vitality, detoxify the body and offer the practitioner a sense of inner peace. Fire heats and strengthens the body, activates and expands the senses, relieves depression, stimulates the immune system and detoxifies the body. Water cools the body and calms the nervous system, develops grace and greater range of motion, promotes deep relaxation and releases tension, stress, anxiety and fear.
