Typical conditions the program will benefit include:
Falls Prevention, to include: Arthritis, pain management, sarcopenia, brain injuries (including stroke recovery).
Cardiovascular Rehabilitation to include: Heart, Pulmonary, circulatory system, asthma/respiratory system (COPD).
A holistic mind-and-body approach is applied. The program includes both seated and standing tai chi qigong (shibashi) designed to improve mobility, balance and confidence. The set is progressive and can be speeded up to make it more aerobic as people progress over the weeks. In addition to learning tai chi qigong, the program covers history of tai chi, mindfulness, relaxation and motivation.
The aims and objectives of the program are to introduce patients/students to a progressive form of exercise for mind and body. The gentle nature of tai chi qigong (shibashi) makes it ideal for all levels of fitness and mobility. As the practice of tai chi qigong is so accessible, it has been found that people practice more regularly and look to progress further into the art of tai chi. The overall aim is to encourage, those taking part, to continue exercising in the long term and thereby gaining the longer-term benefits of tai chi and qigong.
