The phrase Tai Chi Chuan translates from Chinese as “great polarity boxing”, drawing on the traditional Chinese Taoist beliefs in the interdependence of Yin and Yang in the body and mind.
These opposing forces complement each other and can be complete only when balanced in harmony. Skilled Tai Chi Exponents exploit the strength of the earth (yin) and the energy (chi) of the heavens (yang) to focus their physical and spiritual energies so that mind and body work together to improve balance, stability, flexibility, and skill.
As an integrated exercise system for both mind and body, Tai Chi is an enjoyable and effective way to reduce stress and avoid mental and physical tension, while at the same time helping to cultivate inner spiritual strength and creativity.
