In Tai Chi you're always moving, but always under complete control. There's no overextension, no wasted effort. The body moves as one with the arms, feet, waist and body parts balanced in circular movement - moving, rotating, transforming. The weight shifts continuously, evenly, and under complete control throughout the form, coming to rest briefly, but completely on one leg or the other as the next element of the form unfolds.
Throughout the form, the body remains soft and relaxed, as if suspended from the top of the head the whole body is liken to pearls joined by a thread.
The mind is centered on each movement, assessing the alignment and correctness of the form, focusing on feeling the flow - from substantial to insubstantial in each movement and vise versa.
Breathing in through the nose slow and even, inhaling during contractions, and exhaling during expansions of the form.
The benefits of Tai chi has been evaluated and used in Universities, Hospitals and Alternative Health centers for improving health and wellness. (See scientific articles on Tai chi)
