The ultimate benefit of T'ai Chi is to experience life in a healthy and fully aware state of being.
T'ai Chi Ch'uan is a soft, internal Chinese martial art consisting of slow, flowing, meditative movements. Although T'ai Chi is an excellent form of self defense, most people practice it for the health benefits.
T'ai Chi can improve the quality of life, maintain physical health, increase a person's mental awareness and enhance spiritual serenity. By teaching awareness of their own internal energy, the student learns to assimilate unity, harmony and coordination in movement as well as daily life. There are no age limitations to participation and no special equipment is needed, just loose clothing and soft shoes.
