T’ai Chi means “Supreme Ultimate”. It is a slow, no-impact Chinese exercise which integrates mind, body and spirit to function in harmony with the external world. T’ai-Chi facilitates both strength and endurance through slow, relaxed and purposeful physical movements of the body, accompanied by deep belly breathing and mental concentration (meditation) for the purpose of control and achieving a more balanced “body and mind” state.
T’ai Chi trains a person to relax external muscles and utilize deeper structural muscles, which strengthens the tendons and the bones. It teaches to take the stress off the back, hips, and shoulders, and to allow the large muscles in the legs to support the weight, which contributes to enhanced balance as well as improved ability in daily activities. It is a moderate aerobic exercise that can reduce stress levels and enhance the body’s immune response.
