Tai Chi (Grand Ultimate), also known as Taiji, was originally created as a martial art (Taiji Ch'uan), but is more commonly known today for its health benefits. Originating in China hundreds of years ago, Tai Chi is also well known for containing a system of slow meditative movements, known as form, which greatly enhance relaxation and concentration capabilities. Natural outcomes of practicing the form include the reduction of stress and the balancing of one's emotions.
Before advancing to the practice of faster movements, one has to spend a long time re-learning how to move in a natural and efficient manner, utilizing proper structure, alignment, and intent. The slow, graceful, and continuous movements found in the form are gentle on the joints and muscles, so are suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels.
Tai Chi is often referred to as a type of moving meditation because it stimulates the mind, body, and spirit. In a regular class, you will practice the Yang style.
