Today people around the world are discovering the benefits of Tai-chi, an ancient Chinese system of exercise based on calm, graceful movements that condition the body from the inside out. With benefits like stress reduction, plus improved flexibility and concentration, Tai-chi has become the ultimate form of self help and personal growth—exercise for relaxing and strengthening both body and spirit.
Master Huang's Complete Tai-chi is the definitive introduction to the Condensed Form of Wu-style Tai-chi, a form that has gained enormous popularity as a healing exercise because it stresses the development of internal energy for self-healing. The 36 postures of this style are beautiful in their simplicity and completely safe, regard less of one's age or physical condition. Included in this book are a detailed guide to the 36 postures—with more than 250 illustrative photographs—a historical overview of Tai-chi, and translations of classic works by Tai-chi masters.
The demands of Tai-chi are small, but the rewards are great. A few minutes each day and a bit of open space are all one needs to find a new path to youthfulness and longevity, and at the same time reach the peak of physical and emotional well-being.
