Tai Chi for balance
Meditation in Motion: Tai Chi is an abbreviation of Tai Chi Chuan which means “ultimate fast fist”. Slow and graceful movements are performed in continuity without pause. Such practice requires a great deal of concentration and coordination between mind and body, which is the reason why Tai Chi is often referred to as “Meditation in Motion”. Tai Chi movements are performed with an artistic grace and complete concentration; the transition from one movement to another is done in a flow without stopping. Simultaneously, diaphragmatic breathing (deep breathing from stomach) along with screaming (not shouting) helps in the movements as well.
Practice Tai Chi for a healthy lifestyle:
Tai Chi is recommended for every age group. However, practice under supervision is necessary to learn the right technique. Tai Chi is a holistic approach in maintaining overall health.
