What is Tai Chi?

Mastering others is strength, mastering yourself is true power.

Tai Chi, also called Tai Chi Quan or Tai Chi Chuan, combines deep breathing and relaxation with flowing movements. Originally developed as a martial art in 13th-century China, Tai Chi is today practised around the world as a health-promoting exercise.

Tai Chi embodies the Chinese idea that all existence is based on life energy: Qi. Many forms of Tai Chi incorporate movements of the arms as though one is gently holding a big beach ball of Qi. Based on the Chinese worldview, Tai Chi divides Qi into two equal, opposing and complementary parts: yin and yang. Tai Chi incorporates the yin-yang unity of opposites in many ways. For example, during Tai Chi forms, the weight shifts repeatedly from one leg to the other and the arms move in opposite, yet complementary directions.
