This School belongs to the highest levels of Qigong; practicing it allows to breakthrough to a sphere of unique possibilities, to discover ourselves, to understand the world and to find our place and purpose in it.

Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi
Tai Chi Qigong is designed to improve the general health and wellbeing of the practitioner. The gentle rocking motions and stretching movements improve circulation and digestion. The chest exercises and controlled breathing improve the lungs. And the overall effect of the exercise is to reduce mental stress and physical tension reflected in the muscles of the body. This Qigong is very effective and easy to learn. The gentle movements synchronized with rhythmic breathing are suitable for people of all ages as it does not put too much stress on muscles and joints and can be practiced sitting or standing. It is equally convenient to practice both in a group and alone.
