Tai Chi

T'AI CHI "The Chinese system of physiotherapy, or therapeutic exercises, is represented primarily in the practice of T'ai Chi Ch'uan. which is a system of exercises performed in close coordination with regulated breathing. The exercises are comprised of thirty-seven movement patterns, the composition of which is regulated by the principles of yin and yang." "The philosophy of T'ai Chi Ch'uan is rooted in Taoism, which advocates natural effort, and in the I Ching, or Book of Changes. The movements and inner teachings are derived from the complementary relationships between Yin and Yang, two fundamental forces that create and harmonize the Universe by their interaction. The Interaction of Yin and Yang is vital to the practice of T'ai Chi Ch'aun..." "In fact, t'ai chi came to be "represented by the circles divided into light and dark, yang and yin." Other interrelated techniques dependent upon yin/yang are zone therapy, polarity therapy, macrobiotics, Shiatsu, Jin-Shin, Do-in, the martial arts (such as Kung FU, Chi Kung, Karate, T'ai Chi), etc." 8 See Also: "Christian" Occult Symbols ~ Part 1, Part 2: Hexagrams & Doves, Part 3: The Legend of Hanukkah
