Tai Chi Principles:

  • These principles include controlling movements to make them smooth and continuous, move as though there is a gentle resistance, correct posture and weight transference, being Song (loosening) and Jing (mental quietness or serenity). The controlled slow and smooth movements help to connect the mind and body and to have better focus. Song will enhance internal energy, improve flexibility and serenity. The right posture and awareness of weight transference improve balance and coordination. These principles work well whether you are using tai chi for health and wellness or for martial art.” (From  What is Real Tai Chi? by Dr Paul Lam, Founder of the Tai Chi for Health Programs, Narwee, NSW, Australia).
