Our Most Frequently Asked Questions

What is Tai Chi?

Tai Chi is a term that refers to the natural energy equilibrium of life. For millennia, people have recognized that nature tends to achieve balance, and they’ve utilized techniques to access this natural energy phenomenon since then. Many energy disciplines, such as Qigong and various healing martial arts, may be considered forms of Tai Chi.

At Fitness Evolution, our Tai Chi group classes use this ancient form of martial arts, breathing, and postures to improve your energy and overall health.

What will we do?

Our group exercises help you focus on the connections between your body and mind, encouraging mindfulness of yourself and your surroundings. You’ll experience gentle yet challenging movements that complement deep breathing and meditation to clear stress, reduce anxiety, heighten awareness of physical limitations, calm the senses, and promote whole-body health.

Our instructors adjust the program to each participant’s body awareness, strength, and flexibility. You may also practice on your own at home or in class between sessions with Tai Chi instructional videos.

How long does it take to see the results of Tai Chi?

Depending on where you are on your present health journey, the results can vary. The mental and mood benefits will begin immediately after the first week as you breathe, stretch, and balance in new ways that you never have before. Weight loss can also be quick if you’re new to working out; however, it is usually slower than other programs.

Tai Chi is a lifelong practice. Over time, these exercises can build your physical and mental resiliency as you learn to regulate stress levels and deeply care for yourself. The results may unfold gradually over weeks, months, or even years as you gain strength from breathwork, better sleep habits, healthier relationships with others, and an overall improvement in your wellbeing.

What’s the difference between Tai Chi and Qigong?

By definition:

  • Tai Chi is one of the three primary martial arts forms from China. Tai Chi is performed in a sequential pattern of movements and postures called a form.
  • Qigong (energy work) is a broad term covering a wide range of exercises combined to cultivate Qi (life energy) throughout the body. Qigong movements and postures move laterally, much like calisthenics. 

Fitness Evolution uses Tai Chi routines in conjunction with group classes at our gym. Through our exercise program, you can feel the energy between your hands with energy-sensing meditation and experience oneness and harmony with the energy around you. Many of the deep stretches are Qigong postures intended to help you increase your energy circulation from head to toe.
