Tai Chi is part of Chinese medicine and philosophy that, in turn, is part of Taoism. Tai Chi is a series of continuous, slow, fluid, smooth and graceful movements. These movements are performed in a relaxed manner, but with knees slightly bent and a straight and upright posture. The Tai Chi exercise is a series of consecutive moves and has been described as "meditation in motion," because concentration is focused on the moves.

When correctly performed, Tai Chi exercises the cardiopulmonary system, stimulates blood circulation, relaxes the joints, and encourages mental relaxation. It involves much time to learn and as much dedication to perfect as a martial art.

In Tai Chi emphasis is on the movement and coordination of breath, the internal environment rather that external manifestation. A breath guides the physical form. Tai Chi uses the attention of the mind, combined with the feeling and the movement of the body. The muscles, tendons, and bones are brought into a different rhythm, providing a new vitality. This, in turn, feeds back information to the mind and feelings.
