Essence Tai Chi was created by Master Owen Liao, Ph.D. It is a Yang style Tai Chi and has only 15 movements. It covers all four directions and four corners. It is a whole body exercise. It takes about 8 to 10 hours to learn and only takes four minutes to perform. It only needs a 6’ x 6’ open space, so you can perform it in front of your TV set in the living room.
Tai Chi is the best general, all-purpose exercise for all ages — from childhood to old age. It is a very gentle and calming exercise. The practice of Tai Chi improves the metabolism, evens the breath, and strengthens the body’s circulation. It stimulates the cells deep within the body and massages the ligaments, joints and internal organs. During the practice of Tai Chi, the joints are bathed in chi resulting in clearing of the blockages in the acupuncture meridians. The resulting benefits provide an improvement in the quality of life: better health, better mobility, a longer life span and a happier disposition.
Among many styles of Tai Chi, Essence Tai Chi is the best known for improving and maintaining health. Immediate benefits can be achieved within four to five minutes. The form can be repeated if an extended practice is desired. The book has step-by-step Tai Chi photos. With these detail photos, it makes Tai Chi learning easy and fun! The unique foot panel on each step is a creative way to assist you to position your feet more precisely.
