There are different types of Tai Chi, yang, chen and wu, a combination can be used, the difference lie’s in the speed of movement, and the way the body holds the postures.

Tai Chi is known for its slow, graceful movements, gentle on joints and muscles, the movements flow from one to another. Tai Chi is excellent for reducing stress and anxiety also increasing flexibility and balance. Tai Chi is like meditation in motion, involving the slow movements, a focused manner and deep breathing, it promotes serenity. The body is in constant motion, Tai Chi is different from Yoga.

Tai Chi is inexpensive, requires no special equipment, it can be done indoors and outside, alone or in a group.The movements in Tai Chi, have wonderful names, which help you to go from one step to the other, Calming the water, pushing the water,circle the globe, hands waving clouds, to name a few, and you will always close with Lotus flower closing, if you have never tried Tai Chi, I personally love it and I am sure you will to………..give it a try.
