What is Tai Chi & Qigong?
Science now recognises everything is energy. When energy is low or blocked within us internally, this leads to disease.
In China, powerful energy cultivation exercises (Qigong) and martial arts (Tai Chi) developed over thousands of years, inspired through the observation of nature. Both have positive benefits for our health and wellbeing. Thankfully, Cheng Man Ch'ing (The Professor) begun sharing these arts with the western world in 1964. An impressive, growing body of scientific research and personal testimonies around the world now help us to understand the importance these ancient arts can have for us all.
NHS Networks state, tai chi and qigong "...are now being revealed as a major part of the solution to some of our most dangerous diseases – heart disease, diabetes and obesity, cancer, stroke, asthma and chronic lung disorders."
"The residents and I found Lee very polite, considerate and patient with everyone he met. The class was delivered to a high standard, with Lee demonstrating his knowledge and skills. The residents found the session very relaxing, stimulating and a nice start to the morning. Everyone is looking forward to Lee to come again."
