Like yoga, Tai'chi is designed for enlightenment and self awareness. Whereas yoga is a series of postures, many of which we hold for a period of time, Tai'chi is fluid. When done properly, there is constant, deliberate motion. Tai'chi strengthens the body and improves flexibility. It is also taught as a form of self defense.
Regardless of where we are in China, I try to take travelers to a park in the morning to watch and participate in Tai'chi. The local people are always thrilled to have us join the exercises and welcome us to come back the next day. Join me on a Chow Fun tour and experience the Tai'chi mind-body connection.
