Today is August 14, 2017 and the start of Tia Chi Life. Many have heard the term “Tai Chi.” But what is Tai Chi? It depends? It depends because it matters if you want to study Tai Chi Chuan for Martial Arts, or just Tai Chi excecises for health and wellness.
This site is specifically geared to Tai Chi exercises for Health & Wellness! Tai Chi Chuan is actually the Martial Arts form, that comes from one of the Five Families who developed Tai Chi Chuan many hundreds of years ago in China. If you want to study the history of Tai Chi Chuan, go to Vital Links on the Menu Bar, log on to Wikipedia, type in the title “Tai Chi Chuan” and read the article.
This site also uses Qigong exercises and Meditation for health and wellness. Qigong is used to calm the mind, increase the life energy or “Qi”, and help to bring balance to daily living. Again, go to the Wikipedia link, type in Qigong and study the article.
Another topic in Wikipedia to study is “Yin & Yang.” you will find that Yin & Yang is related to balance and harmony in nature, as well as the life force in the human body. By studying these topics will will find that Tai Chi, Qigong, and Yin & Yang are all tied together.
I will strive to bring you as much good information for using Tai Chi and Qigong for health and wellness. I have been doing Tai Chi exercises and Qigong meditation for a number of years now. At age sixty-five, I can tell you from my experience, that it keeps me agile, well balanced and in good health. My mission here is to spread the word on the benefits of living the Tai Chi and Qigong life.
