What Is Tai Chi?
Tai Chi (pronounced "tie-CHEE") is an ancient, slow-moving exercise that originated in China around 1200 AD. It is a blend of Shaolin martial art movements and qigong breathing techniques to balance body, mind, and spirit. It works with one's vital life force known as chi - a living energy field that permeates and animates the body. Depletions and blocks in this field occur regularly from stress, poor diet/environment, and negative thought patterns.Tai Chi regenerates and balances this field, thereby cultivating a more harmonious being - physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Tai Chi is well known for its therapeutic benefits and is on the Mayo Clinic's Top Ten Complementary Therapies list.
