WHY IT IS GOOD TO COMBINE TAI JI AND QI GONG

There are many techniques one can learn to achieve balance, improve relaxation, and better one’s health. With a cornucopia of methods and styles being taught, the question arises whether it is possible – and beneficial – to combine the techniques we have come across in order to attain our desired goals. Every teacher has striven to become an expert in his or her field; and will guide you through the lessons carefully. Tai Ji and Qi Gong have integral elements in common, which is why the benefits they have to offer are usually evaluated in the same breath, and often compared. These techniques of rhythmic breathing, intentional movement, visualization, awareness, and chanting help practitioners achieve a balance of life energy or qi. The main difference between Tai Ji and Qi Gong is in the use of the first art to perfect one’s physical/bodily state, and the use of the latter mainly as a healing method. Tai Ji incorporates more parts of the body, whereas Qi Gong focuses only on a few; still, practicing both of them improves your coordination, balance, and overall health. Often called “moving meditation”, Tai Ji and Qi Gong can be practiced by people at any age and with almost any disability. One of the reasons why they may be combined is that Tai Ji is a form of Qi Gong, and they both use the same life energy. Both techniques work with chi energy and have proven successful in fighting various diseases. Today, especially in the Western world, both of these techniques are used for achieving tranquility, improving psychological health and balance, treating various diseases of the heart, muscles, internal organs, etc. Both Tai Ji and Qi Gong have proven most successful in fighting cardiovascular diseases, and if you have heart disease this is one more reason to combine both of these techniques in a daily regimen. Learning about your life energy will help you understand yourself as a being, and help you heal, balance your emotions, ease stress, build athletic power, and achieve balance.
