Tai Chi is considered by many as Meditation in Motion. It's goal is to reduce stress, improve health and focus on breathing. Another benefit is attaining better balance and muscle control.
Tai Chi, or frequently referred to as Tai Chi Chuan, emphasizes physical and mental exercise as a means of improving health. Tai Chi and the Ying/Yang philosophy go hand in hand. In many Tai Chi classes students will be introduced to QiGong. QiGong is the science of cultivating the body's internal energy. This energy is referred to as Qi. Through meditation the student becomes aware of one's Qi. By doing slow moving exercises one will also learn how to balance and coordinate ones breath with the body's movement.
