TaiChi




Tai Chi Meditation Methods:
Open Your Channels to Energy

 Most forms of health exercises, such as Tai Chi Chuan, 
constitute training in three stages: body, breathing, and mind. 
Training of the body means physical presentation of the 
forms. Training of breathing means proper coordination of breathing techniques. And training of the mind means tuning 
the mental state, observation of chi flow in the body, 
 and sensing the interactive relationships 
between the body and the surrounding environment.
