The Origin of Tai Chi

Tai Chi has been more popular due to its immense health benefits. Tai Chi consists of harmoniously movements from the entire body to support the practitioners’ both physical flexibility and mental health.

Many different types of Tai Chi exist but the five main traditional styles are Chen, Yang, Wu, Hao, and Sun. Each style has a unique feature but the five styles all share the same philosophy which concentrates on the natural balance in everything. The philosophy is based on the two opposite elements of the universe: Yin and Yang. Tai Chi is all about balance, which makes the forces of Yin and Yang relate to Movement.
