It promotes stress reduction and fosters greater physical awareness improving balance flexibility and strength.

As A Meditation

Tai Chi is an exercise for the body and mind, offering a way to achieve a natural state of relaxation and a sense of inner peace and calm. It can also be treated as a Spiritual practice providing a way or path (Tao/ Dao) to help deepen our understanding of ourselves and the world we live in.

The Martial Art

The insubstantial can penetrate where there is no opening.”
