Exercise & Meditation in One

Tai chi and qigong combine exercise and meditation into a single activity. As a moving meditation they integrate mind, energy and body into a single, yet multi-level exercise. Working to memorize the moves of the form allows your noisy mind to release the tension of everyday living. In the process, you learn techniques for relaxing and focusing, and toning the body. You develop a "practice" that is active, yet calming. Joining a group class is a nice way to meet like-minded people, too, for some social good-health.

Integrating healthcare strategies is smart, and tai chi and qigong are smart strategies for wellness activities.
