This mystical and ancient combination of Qigong and Martial Arts can prevent and ease many diseases and ills of aging, and could be the perfect exercise for the rest of your life.

Tai Chi is the physical interpretation of the philosophy of Tao - the way of health and harmony with nature, which is based on the principles of Yin and Yang and the Five Elements. In China, Tai Chi is regarded in as an internal art that legends say was created in a monastery by Taoist monks over 1000 years ago as a spiritual practice for health and self-defense.

The value of Tai Chi is in its ability to help us develop our relationship with universal energy and the Tao and the potential to strengthen and repair the physical and energetic body, which in turn has the potential to prevent and cure diseases.

Yang Style Tai Chi Simplified 24 Hand Form

The Yang Style Tai Chi Simplified 24 Hand Form, based on the Long Form of Yang Chengfu, was compiled in 1956 for the Chinese Sports Commission by several leading Tai Chi masters including Professor Li Tian Ji and Fu Zhongwen.

Rooted in Tao philosophy, health and self-defense, the Simplified 24 Hand Form is a great low impact exercise for improving the flow of energy throughout the mind, body and spirit, leading to an overall sense of calm and well-being.

The Simplified 24 Hand Form has become the most popular of all Chinese martial arts, loved by millions of practitioners around the world, and is now an internationally recognized health meditation exercise.

Because this sequence is based on Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan, the training guidelines and principles of the Simplified 24 Form follow the characteristic flavor of the Yang style as described in the Ten Essential Points of Yang Chengfu.

Yang Style Tai Chi Simplified 24 Hand Form is a healing martial art that combines martial arts movements with energy (qi or chi) circulation, breathing, and stretching techniques. It utilizes the ancient philosophy of yin and yang and the five element theories, for its foundation and to establish its training principles.

The training of Tai Chi Chuan includes the integration of mind, qi, and body. The focus on qi circulation was initially used for the purpose of increasing the internal strength of the physical body for combat.

The same techniques that were capable of developing internal power for combat also proved to be effective as life-prolonging, healing, and rejuvenating exercises. These health benefits are the primary contributions that led to todays popularity of the Simplified 24 Form.
