Tai Chi is the art of the harmony of yin and yang, in tangible form.
Tai Chi, at its most basic, is a strong and yet gentle form of physical exercise that is great for your health.
It can also become a very disciplined spiritual practice and this aspect often deepens with practice.
The various movements and postures involved in performing the Tai Chi form cultivate core strength, stability, alignment, flexibility, coordination as well as vital energy.
Breathing of course is very important! Focused and rhythmical breathing emphasizes a relaxed body and encourages strong circulation.
Healthy Spine Tai Chi promotes strength, flexibility, and balance—three key requirements for a healthy spine.
The upright posture, abdominal breathing and cultivation of core strength are some of the major reasons why Tai Chi works so well for back pain.
Muscle strength Tai chi improves both lower-body strength and upper-body strength and can be comparable to resistance training and brisk walking.
The Tai Chi Form has been designed to balance our whole physical, mental, emotional and energetic systems.
When we are not in balance, we may become ill, but when we bring ourselves back into natural balance, or perfect harmony, we can become radiantly healthy.
The meditative state of mind achieved during Tai Chi, coupled with the movements and breathing, helps us to dissipate stress and anxiety.
Tai Chi tends to grow on you, and as you practice it, you will also grow on all levels of your existence.
The Tai Chi Form that we practice, helps us to learn, to observe and embrace the actual earth, water, fire, air and spaciousness within and around us.
The elements all exist in all of us, operating collectively to create our life experience.
Humans are a microcosm of nature and so the five basic elements present in all matter also exist within each individual.
We can tune into and harmonize these powers through the practice of Tai Chi, connecting to the fundamental essence of the elements.
We can be Creator of our own life, take control, awaken the magic and power of the elements and transform our lives forever.
Tai Chi is much more than just a healthy form of exercise. It is, at heart, pure nature or consciousness in movement.
It is a moving meditation.
After performing Tai Chi, you will naturally be a happy, peaceful, radiant presence in the world for a while.
Tai Chi is all about gentle, graceful, rhythmic, meditative movements that will empower you and help you find inner joy, harmony, peace and calm.
