Tai Chi
Tai Chi and Chi Kung (Qi Gong) are great healing treasures of Ancient China's internal arts.  T'ai Chi Chu'an has roots in Chinese martial arts, yet is best known in the U.S. for beautiful flowing forms that quiet the mind, strengthen the body, increase balance and flexibility, and train one to move energy to achieve glowing health.  Qigong/Chi Kung is a powerful system of healing movement and preventive medicine that uses deep breathing    and gentle moving meditation to cleanse, balance and circulate vital energy (qi or chi).  Roger Sencer
