Tai Chi is a system of exercise that originated in ancient Chinese Martial Arts and has now become the most practiced health and exercise system in the world. Often recognized by its slow, graceful and flowing but controlled movements, it combines standing postures with movement, stretching, relaxation and meditation.
Tai Chi Exercises target the quality and function of the physical structure by working to improve body posture, balance, co-ordination and mobility. Taiji is primarily practiced as a sequence of choreographed moves called a form.. The controlled, mindful, movements of taiji have led many to refer to it as “meditation in motion”.
Taiji is practiced by millions of people worldwide, both Eastern and Western. The vast majority of them practice taiji for its health benefits, which have been proven to be wide ranging and significant. In particular, taiji has been found to reduce stress, improve balance, lower blood pressure and help relieve symptoms for a variety of illnesses, including cancer, Parkinson’s, arthritis, and diabetes among others.
