Tai chi movement flows continuously using the whole body as a united force, while concentrating mentally on the action.
As with forms of dance, such as classical ballet, the center point of balance and movement begin and draw their strength at the waist area of the body.
The slow, unbroken flowing movements of tai chi require much attention to each moment. Thoughts are channeled to thinking how to proceed in the pattern, taking up the space that might otherwise be occupied by stressful thoughts of a problem at hand.
Tai chi is quiet movement, concentrated movement, non-competitive, introspective; a way to gracefully regain peace and balance in thinking and living.
For a person who likes to exercise to regain peace of mind and a balanced perspective, practicing tai chi may be a good choice. I can be done anywhere, alone, or with a group.
