What Is Tai Chi?

Often referred to as "meditation in motion." While Tai Chi originated as a martial art in China, it's used today around the world as a form of wellness movement. Tai Chi guides you through a series of gentle movements that can help you improve your health, lower your stress levels, and increase your overall sense of well being.

Tai Chi relies on the Chinese principle of qi. It's believed that qi is an energy force that flows throughout the body. Tai Chi is thought to promote the healthy flow of qi, clearing blockages and helping the body to feel energized. Tai chi is also thought to promote the balance of yin and yang, opposing elements that keep the universe (and our bodies) working in harmony.
