Tai Chi: Learn the Ancient Chinese Art of Tai Chi

Made using traditional Chinese bookbinding techniques, this stunning guide is perfect for both newcomers and beginners to tai chi.
Tai Chi, also known as T’ai Chi Ch’uan, marries yoga and meditation with flowing movement. It is an internal Chinese martial art in which you do not meet force with force, but with softness—following its motion, redirecting it, and matching yang with yin. This gorgeously illustrated and designed volume leads you through 24 yang sequences—including White Crane Flashes its Wings and Wave Hands Like Clouds—each accompanied by easy-to-follow descriptions and illustrations of every move. An introduction covers the origins of Tai Chi, its health benefits, and the ethos of the yang style.
