About the Practice of Tai Chi
What is tai chi?
A soft, slow, stylized stepping sequence that moves through postures designed to enhance health and well-being by cycling primarily gravitational force through the practitioner.
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 memory of postures and the sequence of the 108 moves in the choreography of the 'set'
A Meditative component as a result of the continuous flow of movement
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!
