Healing Movement is a fitness program developed to incorporate gentle, flowing, low-impact forms of exercise to maintain and improve health and reverse the effects of aging. The exercises are grounded in the ancient healing systems of Tai Chi (Grand Ultimate) and Qigong (Vitality Cultivation), and have been translated into a joyful program ideally suited to modern needs.
Harvard Health Publications states: “In the slow-motion, mind-body practices of Tai Chi and Qigong, you move without pausing through a series of motions. As you move, you breathe deeply and naturally, focusing your attention–as in some kinds of meditation–on your bodily sensations. Tai Chi and Qigong differ from other types of exercise in several respects. The movements are usually circular and never forced, the muscles are relaxed rather than tensed, the joints are not fully extended or bent, and connective tissues aare not stretched. Tai Chi can be easily adapted for anyone, from the most fit to people confined to wheelchairs or recovering from surgery. . . .Tai Chi could be the perfect activity for the rest of your life!”
