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 Ball is a Qigong training that is an invaluable part of Tai Chi practice as it builds the softness and strength of the body structure following the roundness of the ball. This training can also strengthen the torso, condition the muscles, and increase physical power.
