T’ai Chi is a series of meditative movements you can learn to improve your health, sharpen your mind and strengthen your spirit. It also contains partner exercises which are good for balance, sensitivity and co-ordination. It originates from China and was developed thousands of years ago by a group of people known as the Taoists who studied Nature and developed exercises which increase the life force which they called the Qi.
