The practices of Tai Chi and Qigong are gentle ways to approach exercise when living with fibromyalgia. The movements can be adapted to the ebb and flow of each student’s health baseline, from lying down to seated and standing. The Classical Chinese movement arts are both powerful and relaxing. A high importance is placed on a correctly aligned posture relating to life long physiological health. There is a difference between good and bad pain which Tai Chi and Qigong help to teach, so the students can exercise in a healthy and appropriate way. When learning the movements, students also learn about pain as an observation tool and how to pace and manage chronic fatigue.  Find out the meaning of qi gong.
