Tai Chi trains balance and body awareness and focuses the mind.
Tai Chi (=Taijiquan) is an ancient practice of slow flowing movements and shifts of balance that strengthen the whole body while conditioning the tendons and ligaments. This exercises all the joints and major muscle groups in a slow, rhythmic, mindful way, priming the body for whatever demands the day may make.
Tai Chi is for anyone who wants to move with greater strength, grace, and ease. It trains balance and body awareness, and focuses the mind.''Tao Motion Tai Chi" activates the healing energy in you.
Learn to give 70% energy into your actions
The core of the 70 percent rule is a creative art, not a science. It says you should use your full effort and energy, but not to the point of strain.
Use Tai Chi movements to heal body and mind
Through the natural, unrestricted postures the meridians (energy channels) open more, so the life force Qi can circulate freely and then multiply. This is the basis of vitality, health and joy of life! With daily practice your body will become smooth, conscious and your movements gracefulness. The Inner organs are massaged and your senses become more acute. Your mind will be alert, clear and your breathing will become deep and calm.

Tai Chi as a weekend or one-day seminar is combined with other easy internal exercises. These may include the "Micro Cosmic Orbit" or the "Inner Smile" (see Tao Qigong) or special breathing techniques, which are always combined with a long yin phase (doing nothing phase). It is there where the healing takes place.
