Ancient and Effective
The BBC programme ‘Trust Me I’m a Doctor’ (Series 2; 19th October 2018) compared Tai Chi to Zumba, favourably, as a form of aerobic exercise by measuring flexibility of capillaries, chemical markers of inflammation and heart rate .
This is backed up by a paper published in the BMJ 24th March 2018 which compared Tai Chi to aerobic exercise. Similar physiological results were found and in addition, class attendance and adherence to home exercise was higher than in standard prescribed exercise (patients found Qigong/Tai Chi more enjoyable and less painful) and physiologically had similar or greater benefits. Tai Chi and Qigong are so similar that the research can be applied to both.
I have just discovered your you tube postings, and just wanted to say thank you. Your teaching is so clear and easy to follow. I have practiced Qigong for several years now and yoga for many, many, so the frame of reference for my accolades to you are well established.." (2018 you tube subscriber)
The Qi Gong Teachers Association UK is a good source of information about Qigong in general.
