Yang Tai Chi is the single most popular style in the world, practiced daily by millions of people. Tai Chi is a form of “moving meditation” practiced with slow, relaxed, and flowing movements.  The art is ideal for those seeking gentle rehabilitative exercises for reducing stress, and/or to study “inner power” or your “true nature” through calmness.  It is a low impact exercise that emphasizes  balance, grace, and fluidity of motion.  Harvard Medical studies have shown that Tai Chi is very beneficial for the health of the heart, bones, muscles, nerves and arteries, immune system, and the mind.  

Tai chi might well be called “medication in motion.” There is growing evidence that this mind-body practice …has value in treating or preventing many health problems.— Harvard Medical School’s Harvard Health Publication, May, 2009
