Stanford Medical Tai Chi (taiji) is a medical school elective open to Stanford undergraduate and graduate students, employees, and community members. From 4:30 to 5:00 we study the peer-reviewed medical literature on the health benefits of tai ji and qigong ("chee goong"). From 5:00 to 6:00 we learn tai ji theory, warm up with standing meditation and silk-reeling qigong exercises plus Shaolin style walking qigong. We then practice a tai chi set derived from the Tai Chi for Health Institute’s Tai Chi for Energy. TCE is a combination of Chen, Yang, and Sun styles. Forms consist of easy-to-learn, gentle, relaxing movements suitable for all fitness levels and physical abilities.

If you find yourself fidgeting during sitting style meditation, the mind and body-focusing movements of qigong might be for you. You will learn both silk reeling in place and various walking qigong forms.
