What is Tai Chi ?
Tai Chi is the harmony of Yin/Yang. We must first find this harmony within ourselves, harmonizing Body, Mind & Breath, then with all things, "Heaven", "Earth" & "Humans".
Unlike other exercises, Tai Chi Chuan focuses on developing “Chi”. Chi is the universal cosmic energy that is in all living things. When Chi is weak or stagnant in our body, we become ill. Through the relaxed and graceful movements of Tai Chi Chuan, we learn to circulate "Chi" throughout our body, relaxing, balancing, and healing our body while calming our minds.
Tai Chi Chuan is also a moving meditation. Every movement is controlled by the Mind and Breath. It is very good for stress and relaxation. It is also a martial art, where the movements can be used in self-defense. The exact translation of Tai Chi Chuan is “Grand Ultimate Fist”.
Tai Chi Chuan is believed to: Boost the immune system, Slow the aging process, reduce the incidence of "Anxiety", "Depression" and overall Mood Disturbances.
Tai Chi Chuan is the most effective balance and coordination exercise in the world.
