Center yourself as you become aware of your own energy, while relaxing and strengthening your body without injury or strain. Tai Chi (Taiji) is an ancient form of meditative exercise, helping one meet day to day challenges by harmonizing mind and body and keeping oneself in tune with the natural order of things.
