Heal yourself physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually with the ultimate guide to T'ai Chi and QiGong for beginners!

T'ai Chi — a martial art used for health, meditation, and self-defense — and QiGong — a large variety of physical and mental training methods based on Chinese philosophy — are widely recognized to heal physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. T'ai Chi has demonstrated its health benefits by being linked with everything from slowing the aging process and increasing balance and flexibility to lowering stress levels and enhancing the body's natural healing powers.


In this fourth edition of The Complete Idiot's Guide® to T'ai Chi & QiGong, the authors have streamlined the book, giving it a clearer how-to focus. Nearly 150 video clips complement the 300 helpful illustrations in the book by demonstrating a complete T'ai Chi exercise — all exclusively available to readers on the authors' website.
