Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This video is the final program in a three-part series that presents instruction in the ancient Chinese arts of t'ai chi and qigong. Both disciplines use body postures to promote the free flow of qi, or basic life force, throughout the body. The control of the breath enhances the body's vitality. In Chinese philosophy, vibrant health is considered a prerequisite for achieving a quiet heart and mind, which in turn promote longevity. Practitioner Bill Douglas presents the exercises in a straightforward way.
