Taijiquan seeks harmony with life, with others, and with the universe ("Supreme Ultimate"). It is often called moving meditation because instead of thinking about many things you concentrate on only one: what you are doing at that particular moment. Taijiquan is performed slowly, to involve every muscle (no matter how small) used in the movement and to keep the mind focused on the movement. It is performed with continuous, seamless movement, and with circular, never-ending energy in order to open all the joints and allow qi to flow freely and uniformly. The key elements are relaxation, and mental and physical suppleness. The health benefits of Taijiquan are spectacular and well documented. It is an excellent activity--mentally, physically, and spiritually--for people of all ages and abilities.
