In China, and increasingly through out the world, Tai Chi is recognised for its great powers in instilling and maintaining good health and fitness in people of all ages. Regular practice can prevent the onset of illness and prove effective in the treatment of common ailments and debilitating conditions.
Tai Chi (The art of awareness) is a form of harmonious body movements incorporating ancient Chi Kung exercises. The Chinese culture has always been concerned with the promotion of a well functioning body, but recently there has been an increase in the number of people interested in Tai Chi from the West. Tai Chi means Grand Ultimate and is the name given to a number of traditional Chinese forms whose characteristics are gentle movements that harmonise breathing with mental concentration against a particular philosophical background.
