About the Practice of Tai Chi
Tai Chi is a slow, soft, continuous stepping sequence designed to circulate forces (including gravitational) through the practitioner in such a way that improves well-being, health, and autonomy.
Tai Chi is about moving. The 108 moves of the 'set' are performed in a variety of postures. The postures are aligned with gravitational forces to protect the anatomical structures. Therefore, all the benefits of moving are available such as:
In addition, Tai Chi provides:
a Brain Exercise by challenging the memories of the postures and developing neurological connection such as through propioception
A Meditative component as a result of ie: continuous flow of movement, gaze, slow speed
An aerobic exercise due to the sustained 25-30 minutes required for the completion of the 108 moves of the set
These health benefits are usually noticed within the first two months and can continue to enhance health for a life time!
