Tai Chi is a very deep art with no finish line. New Jersey Tai Chi believes in teaching real Tai Chi in depth as soon as possible. In order to reap the many benefits of Tai Chi, you need to learn structural alignments; efficiency of movement; the various body states and energies of the art. Those are some of the skills that will bring about the real benefits, which they want you to receive as soon as possible. As a result, they teach a short form in order to avoid a common problem in Tai Chi. Most schools spend great amounts of time learning long sets of choreography without developing the real components and skills of Tai Chi.

Regular practice of Tai Chi nourishes the body, mind, and spirit. As physical exercise, Tai Chi stengthens the legs and improves balance. Posture and flexibility in the joints are improved, so you can stand and move with less effort. The slow shifting of weight from leg to leg helps the circulation of blood through the body, improving heart health. The quality of relaxation in Tai Chi, as you move through the sequence of postures, helps to regulate the flow of your internal energy, your qi, through the whole body, nourishing the health of your internal organs.
As you learn to relax physically, you learn to relax your thoughts and emotions, relieving the stress of family, relationships and work. Stress relief is a common Tai Chi benefit that brings many people to this art.
Placing the focus of your awareness at the center of the body makes Tai Chi a moving meditation, a way to be centered and grounded throughout your day.
