About the Practice of Tai Chi
Tai Chi is a slow, soft, continuous stepping sequence that circulates forces (mostly gravitational) through the practitioner to develops bones, muscles, tissues, and neurology thereby optimizing human response.
Tai Chi is about moving optimally. The 108 moves of the 'set' are performed in a variety of postures 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 proprioception
A Meditative component resulting via 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!
