Many forms of exercise dissipate your energy, leaving you tired and hyper at the same time. The slow, gentle, dance-like movements of Tai Chi accumulate energy while calming you down, allowing you to feel refreshed when you finish. Tai Chi creates an awareness of and influences dimensions that are not part of traditional exercise programs. Most exercises do not involve the meridian system used in acupuncture nor do they emphasize the importance of adding mind intent and breathing techniques to physical movements. When these dimensions are added, the benefits of exercise increase exponentially. If you are interested in learning how to relax, gather more energy and reduce stress in your life, then Tai chi is right for you.
Recent medical studies confirm what these Tai Chi practitioners have known for centuries - that just 20 minutes a day of Tai Chi can dramatically improve your balance, improve your leg and lower body strength, and increase flexibility.
It is part of the 4,000 year-old system of Traditional Chinese Medicine practiced in China and now recognized by the U.S. National Institute of Health's Office of Alternative Medicine as an important method of Alternative Health Care. Over 75 percent of traditional medical schools in the USA now have training in natural, complimentary medicine.
Many Tai Chi videos emphasize the martial art aspect, but this video focuses on self-healing. This video covers the breadth of health practices that both Tai Chi and Chi Gung have to offer: techniques for detoxifying your body, for achieving better balance, and even exercises for longevity. To find all these practices from other sources you would need to buy a number of videos – here they’re all together in one DVD so you can get the most out of your Tai Chi practice. (See our F.A.Q.s page for more detailed information about the benefits of Chi Gung (also spelled Qigong) and Tai Chi.)
Many Tai Chi videos just aren’t that easy to learn from - they have too many movements to learn and require postures that can be difficult for people. Or maybe you’ve found yourself wanting subtitles because the instruction is not easily understood. Our video takes a different approach - each movement was picked to make sure that anyone could easily do them. Our goal was to take the mystery and difficulty out of learning Tai Chi and make it easy for everyone to do and get the health benefits. Enjoy all the benefits of health and relaxation from this ‘moving meditation’— even if you can’t sit still and focus!
