Tai Chi has been called “Moving Meditation”  because the slow, graceful movements can induce a deep sense of peacefulness.  At the same time, the complexity of the movements requires intense concentration similar to those experienced when creating a work of art.  The result for many practitioners is a sense of timelessness, serenity and the experience of being fully present.

Western scientists have noted that Tai Chi’s slow, deliberate movements help patients improve balance and flexibility.  People with specific ailments, such as arthritis, have found relief from some symptoms.  Beyond the benefits of the movements themselves, learning Tai Chi:  Moving for Better Balance is an eight-movement form created by researchers at the Oregon Research Institute.  Clinic trial using this form have yielded impressive results in reducing falls and alleviating various symptom.
