Qigong is sometimes called the ‘new yoga,’ but its practice dates back over 4000 years in China. It is the process of aligning breath and movement, awareness of exercise and healing and meditation. Qigong is very similar to Tai Chi and creates a great opportunity for mental and physical challenges. Meditation is powerful. It is taught with Qigong and use throughout Independence.® It offers a wide variety of health benefits for your physiological, psychological and sociological well-being and is simple to perform. Mediation relieves tension in the muscles and reduces depression, stress, loneliness and anxiety. It can reduce body pain, decrease blood pressure and improve circulation. Meditation can make you more alert and positively impact your ability to interact with others and your surroundings. It can even help you sleep better!This routine is split 50/50 on Meditation and Qigong. It is unique and can be seen as a break from the strength building workouts. This video is intentionally very relaxing. Enjoy! Featuring Connie Balcom, ACE-Certified Senior Fitness Specialist.
