Tai Chi and Qigong (a simplified type of movement practice related to Tai Chi) has a growing body of research proving its efficacy in treating disease, injury, and physical limitations. While Tai Chi and Qigong form is important, the principles of Tai Chi and Qigong movements and posture are what facilitate the healing process.
This workshop emphasizes the Tai Chi and Qigong movement principles and the benefits of these Tai Chi principles as evidence based therapeutic intervention. Participants will learn the six basic principles of Tai Chi through simple Tai Chi form and QiGong. Through this experience, they will learn how to apply the Tai Chi principles and Qigong movements to address various patient diagnoses in a variety of clinical settings for addressing component deficits as well as functional outcomes.
This workshop is delivered in a hybrid format; part online individual course work and a one day in person portion.
