Welcome to Tai Chi Moves!
Tai Chi is a peaceful Chinese form of exercise that can be practiced by anyone at any age. The arm movements can even be done in a wheelchair.
Just six months after having open heart surgery, I went on a cruise to Asia, and did a bit of Tai Chi everywhere I went.
This video clip shows how healthy I was!
Tai Chi is based on a set of 108 moves with exotic names such as “Strum the Pei Pa,” “White Stork Spreads Wings” or “Carry Tiger to Mountain.”
There are many styles of Tai Chi. But there is, in particuliar, a simplified form of Tai Chi, which was developed by Master Moy Lin-Shin in the 1970’s, according to the Taoist philosophy. It is not to be practiced as a martial art technique or in a competitive spirit, but rather as a means to cultivate every aspect of health.
If you want to learn this simplified form of tai chi, you may want to order a DVD in English or in French. Even though the 108 moves presented in this DVD are the same as those I was taught by Master Moy Lin Shin through his worldwide society, I am not affiliated with and do not represent this organization.
Enjoy your tai chi experience, and be healthy!
