Yoga and T'ai Chi
T'ai Chi and Yoga
What is T'ai Chi?
Tai Chi Ch’uan or “Supreme Ultimate Boxing” is a system of
rounded, fluid, balanced movements practiced daily for health and peace of
mind. When the movements and postures of Tai Chi have been mastered, they can
be used to neutralize aggressive actions and to counterattack for defense.
Known primarily as a martial art, it is used in the West to
improve health. Practicing Tai Chi is one of the quickest and most effective
ways to increase your body potential. Tai Chi improves balance, flexibility and
helps to reduce stress for overall good health improving our quality of life.
As your muscles learn to relax while in motion, they are gently

Tai Chi's flowing, effortless motions cleanse rigidity and stress. Not
only from muscles but also from the mind, heart and emotional systems. It is
extremely helpful in regaining balance and strength.

entirely focused on your body’s movements. The result is a body that feels
energized and a mind that is calm and relaxed. In short, yoga is a wonderful
antidote to today’s hectic life.
Developed over 5,000 years ago, Hatha Yoga is a complete system of
postures (asanas), breathing practices (pranayama), and deep relaxation
(sarvasana). It was originally intended to prepare the body for long periods of
meditation. Although still used as such today, in this country, Hatha Yoga is
used primarily as a way to stay centered, fit, flexible and relaxed.
Anyone can practice Hatha Yoga. It is a practice that can be done
at any age or physical condition. It requires very little special equipment or
space. Because Hatha Yoga is not an extreme activity at the beginning level,
results can be measured in such things as increased body awareness, increased
flexibility and the ability to better deal with stress and tension. With
practice, will come real physical changes, mastery of your breathing and the relaxation
techniques that will give the ability to maintain a calm-mind in a chaotic
