Tai Chi (also spelled Taiji) is a sequence of movements combining Qigong and Chinese martial arts, designed to improve physical and mental well-being. In China, it is common to see groups of people doing Taiji in the park.

Qigong (sometimes spelled Chi Kung) is the ancient Chinese study of energy or Qi. In particular, Qigong is a series of gentle movements designed to improve the Qi in your body. The low-impact and gentle movements are especially popular with older people.

Tied in with Qi is the concept of Yin and Yang, and trying to balance constantly-changing conditions. In Chinese Traditional Medicine, you have good health when the energy in your body is balanced and can flow easily through your body.
