"Qigong is the art and science of refining and cultivating internal energy."

WHAT IS QIGONG?
A DANCE BETWEEN VITAL ENERGY & BODY
Qigong is a holistic system of coordinated body posture and movement, breathing, and meditation used for the purposes of health, spirituality, and martial arts training. Qi (chee) here means 'energy'.
Rings a bell? Yes, the same way Yoga liberates India, so does Qigong liberate Asia. Same principles, same logic, just different words, outfits & spices ;)
WHAT IS TAI CHI?
A FORM OF QIGONG
Tai Chi is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training, its health benefits and meditation. Tai Chi is a form of Qigong. Chi (gee) here means 'Ultimate'
As Chungliang Al Huang puts it, Tai chi does not mean oriental wisdom or something exotic. It is the wisdom of your own senses, your own mind and body together as one process..
