Tai Chi is a complete and integrated exercise, which works all of the body’s systems deeply yet gently. It promotes good health by enhancing the circulation of “chi” or vital energy in the body. According to Chinese medicine, ill health comes as a result of impairments in the flow of this energy, through specific pathways (or meridians) in the body. The 108 movements are designed to open up blockages along the meridians, thereby allowing energy to flow freely throughout key areas in the body and to nourish and stimulate the internal organs to which the meridians are connected. This art gradually and gently works to strengthen and transform every part and system of the body. The movements also benefit the joints, tendons and ligaments, taking them through their full range of motion to achieve maximum flexibility and reduce the natural deterioration of the joints that tends to occur with age. Tai Chi increases the circulation of blood and oxygen to all parts of the body, strengthening the cardiovascular system while improving physical conditioning, decreasing fatigue, and developing endurance. The movements promote deep relaxed breathing and increase the heart rate to aerobic exercise levels.
