Tai chi is an ancient Chinese tradition that has evolved over centuries to become a means of alleviating stress and anxiety, a form of “meditation in motion” and promotes serenity and inner peace.
Taiji Quan (Tai Chi Chuan) is a time-tested art which gently exercises the body, the energy flow, and the mind, and can be used for health, longevity, mental freshness, and spiritual development. Taiji Quan aims at well-being, including the attainment of grace and balance, the promotion of physical and emotional health, and the development of energy flow. Though there are many varieties of Taiji Quan today, all have a common philosophy of relaxation of the mind and body so the body’s natural energy can flow freely.
