Tai Chi Chuan began as a martial art in China over 1,000 years ago and is now widely recognised for its great health benefits. This book provides simple, clear and highly illustrated introduction.
The book introduces readers to the history, philosophy and practice of this fascinating, multi-faceted art. From its early origins in the holy Taoist Mountains of China it has now become a highly practical tool for life in the 21st century. Tai Chi can help to improve posture, increase energy levels and create a calm, clear mind.
By learning a few simple postures, and regularly practising them for a few minutes each day, you can gradually come to integrate this ancient Chinese system into your daily routine and enjoy its benefit in many ways: physically, mentally, emotionally and, ultimately, spiritually.
Included are a number of postures from the first section of the Short Yang form that will take only three minutes to complete. They will provide a little taste of what Tai Chi Chuan can offer.
