IP's Living Now Award GOLD WINNER - 2011 Eric Hoffer Award HONORABLE MENTION - 2011 WHAT IS TAI CHI BALL? Tai Chi Ball training used to be common practice in both external and internal martial arts. Unfortunately, due to its secrecy, fewer and fewer people have learned it. Today the art of Tai Chi Ball Qigong is almost forgotten. HOW CAN I USE IT? Fortunately, this book (and the companion DVDs) allows interested students to practice this effective training and incorporate it into their general exercise routine, or martial arts regimen. HOW WILL TAI CHI BALL TRAINING BENEFIT ME? For martial artists, Tai Chi Ball Qigong training can strengthen the torso, condition the muscles, and increase physical power by using the mind to lead the qi. It can be a major training tool to enhance pushing hands ability. For general exercise, Tai Chi Ball Qigong training helps those who might overly focus on ‘core body exercises’ to strengthen their hips, knees, and ankles. You will learn to move the vertebrae of the spine, increase energy through various breathing techniques, and learn to move many joints properly at different angles.

Are you looking for a more invigorating type of movement meditation that works your body as well as your mind and spirit? If yes, you should give qigong a try. Qigong, also spelled chi kung or chi gung, is a Chinese medical energy system that promotes health, flexibility, healing and spirituality through coordinated body postures, movements and breathing.

Breathing is an important part of this system, and the movements and the breathing together combine to help you reach a meditative state.
