The Ancient Art Of Meditation In Motion

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comI recently attended a Tai Chi class for the first time and absolutely loved it. I have seen this ancient martial art being practiced on television and in films before, and always thought I would like to experience it myself someday.

Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese tradition involving slow movements and breathwork that is essentially meditation in graceful motion. At this recent event, I enjoyed it so much that I intend to continue pursuing this practice.

Our instructor at the event also explained the many health benefits of practicing Tai Chi, which further fueled my interest. This may include reduced stress, improved mood, mental health and cognitive function, enhanced immune function, increased cariovascular health, better sleep patterns, and even reduced risk of falling in mature adults.

One of the key advantages of Tai Chi is that it has no age limit. In fact, I was surprised at the various age groups in attendance that day. It is certainly a wonderful mind, body, and soul pursuit for everyone, because it is a gentle and slow-paced ‘internal’ martial art that does not involve any competition.

The exact history and origins of Tai Chi is unclear. Some scholars believe it originated from ancient Taoist and Buddhist monasteries, while others contend that Tai chi is a purely Chinese art that originates from the spiritual wisdom traditions of Daoism and Confucianism. There are many styles of Tai Chi that differ in execution and training methods.

Spiritual balance is tai chi. It’s the center of things. It’s the place where yin and yang meet, where all things come together ~ Frederick Lenz

Our instructor at my first class incorporated about twelve movements into the demonstration session and encouraged us to focus on our breathing, and also to be aware of how our bodies felt with each movement. This kept me mindful of what I was doing and where potential weaknesses and lack of balance in my body may be.

The gracefulness of each movement allows it to flow seamlessly into the next, to form a meaningful sequence. I was surprised to find that although it looks simple to do, it actually requires good balance, strength and flexibility. There is however much emphasis on relaxation of the muscles, as the body is not meant to be under any strain. This allows for free flow of qi or life energy, bringing about harmony of body, mind and spirit.

The ability to participate in online Tai Chi sessions these days also appeals to me and suits my schedule, not to mention that no special equipment is required. I have been doing this ancient mind-body practice in comfortable clothes in the privacy of my home…with my pets being entertained at the same time! I look forward to experiencing increased inner peace, personal well-being and improved physical strength and balance, as I continue to master this amazing ancient discipline.
