What is Tai Chi?
Tai Chi is a system of body-mind exercise for health. It involves isotonic and isometric muscle contraction, dynamic balance, coordinated postural control, diaphragmatic breathing, mental focus and visualization among other key techniques. During Tai Chi practice, movements are well coordinated and executed seamlessly, the body remains relaxed, the mind stays focused and breathing is naturally deepened. There is compelling evidence that Tai Chi exercises improve cardiovascular and respiratory health; strengthen immune system; reduce anxiety and depression; and improve mental and physical health and quality of life. Tai Chi exercises have also been demonstrated to be effective in improving mobility, flexibility, coordination and balance.
The practice of Tai Chi is underpinned by Taoism, an ancient Chinese philosophy which emphasizes the importance of following the law of nature and maintaining the natural balance and harmony of the body system. Through uniquely designed body movements integrated with mind training diaphragmatic breathing , Tai Chi aims to restore the body system to its natural equilibrium and homeostasis.
