Tai Chi is an internal Chinese martial art that can yield amazing health benefits. Tai Chi centers on training with slow, graceful, and circular movements that utilize strength in the core to build balance and inner strength. There are 5 styles of Tai Chi, the oldest being Chen Tai Chi. There are 74 forms, or a sequence of standard movements, of Chen Tai Chi. Most people practice Tai Chi for its meditative and internal aspect with the goal of maintaining a good flow of a person’s Chi, or one’s Life Flow, which is believed in Chinese Medicine to greatly influence one’s health.
