The Concept of Tai Chi

Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese system of exercise for people of all ages that can prevent and cure disease. It promotes health and is also an effective form of self defense. The circular movements of Tai Chi are non-strenuous, soft and flowing. It is often described as “moving meditation” because it relieves stress and improves concentration. The slow turning motions loosen the joints and spine and relax points of tension in the body. Tai Chi trains the mind to direct the flow of internal energy or Qi. The movements are preformed with silk-like energy that is continuous, flexible, soft and effortless. Slow, deep and gentle breathing regulates the forms tempo. Tai Chi can be an effective therapy to strengthen the digestive, circulatory, and skeletal systems.
