Qi Gong (Chi Gong) is a series of slow forms for the body and the mind. It has been practiced in China for more than 5,000 years. Qi Gong was originally called Tao Yin; it is the precursor to Tai Chi and Kung Fu. It was created to help promote, protect and strengthen health and prolong life and is said to reverse the aging process.
Tai Chi is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits. Though originally conceived as a martial art, it is also typically practiced for a variety of other personal reasons: including-achieving greater longevity. As a result, a multitude of training forms exist, both traditional and modern. Some training forms of t'ai chi ch'uan are especially known for being practiced with relatively slow movements.
