Beginner's Guide to Tai Chi
This method of exercise to promote self-healing and eliminate stress originated in China, where it continues to be widely practiced today. Here's an effective week-by-week program to guide readers who want to master T'ai Chi. Its practitioners often compare it to yoga, though unlike yoga, it emphasizes body motions rather than positions. This manual offers instruction and advice on creating an individually tailored T'ai Chi program, and is filled with illustrations and self-assessment charts, all in color.
