Tai Chi is an ancient discipline of gentle exercise, originating in China over two thousand years ago, that has led to improved health, fitness, wellbeing and longevity for countless individuals up to the present time.
The purpose of Tai Chi is to improve the flow of Chi -- the life energy that flows through the body’s energy pathways -- with a series of slow, gentle, relaxed, meditative, continuous, circular and flowing movements. Because each movement is an integral part of the next, making up a continuous flowing movement, a ‘path’ is built and the Chi can flow in a continuous stream throughout the practice, unblocking and balancing the Chi.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), good health is due to a free-flowing and well-balanced energy system. When the balance of Chi is disrupted, ailments and illness occur. When the balance of Chi is restored, health is re-established.
Tai Chi is based on the concepts of yin and yang -- a constantly changing state -- fullness to emptiness and passive to active, etc. In other words, the body manifests yin and yang throughout the forms:-- for example, when the right foot is raised from the ground it is called ‘emptiness’/’insubstantial’ (yin) and the energy (Chi) is yang, and the left foot is called ‘fullness’/’substantial’ (yang) and the Chi is yin; if the left hand is pressing then it is termed ‘active’ (yang) and the energy is yin, while the right hand is ‘passive’ (yin) and the energy is yang. The concepts of yin and yang in Tai Chi also promote harmony in the flow of Chi...more
