Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This video is from a three-volume series that presents the philosophy and techniques of the ancient Chinese practices of t'ai chi and qigong. Both disciplines focus upon the control of qi, the universal life force found in the breath and throughout the body. Long-established postures and exercises promote the free flow of qi throughout the body, resulting in vibrant health. In the Chinese way, vibrant health is a prerequisite for achieving a quiet heart and mind, which promote longevity. Instruction is provided by practitioner Bill Douglas.
