Tai Chi is a sequence of postures connected by flowing movement, practiced with focused breathing and a calm mind—a type of moving meditation. Practicing Tai Chi regularly can reduce stress, increase energy, balance, and flexibility, and ease symptoms of many health problems such as high blood pressure, asthma, back pain, and arthritis.

Tai Chi Silk Reeling: Yin-Yang Symbol is an ancient art known for training soft and flowing movements like silk reeling following the Tai Chi Yin-Yang Symbol to develop your sticking hands, body connection, coordination, and whipping power (Jin).
