T'ai Chi Meditation
The standing posture is basic to T'ai Chi Ch'uan and all of the internal martial arts. It is used to dissolve tension, promote smooth uninterrupted chi (energy) flow and to understand and develop internal power.
9 Chi Building Exercises
Basic Exercises focus on precise structural alignment, active relaxation, softness, balance, mind/body co-ordination, building leg strength and endurance, spiral mechanics, improving circulation, and increasing flexibility. These exercises calm the mind, strengthen the chi and provide physical benefits
Joint Loosening Moves
Joint Loosening Movements provide full articulation (complete range of motion) to all your joints, with the help of smooth, continuous, circular motion. This makes your joints flexible in all directions. They serve as warm-up exercises prior to any demanding activity and loosen tightened, knotted muscles that inhibit circulation and relaxation. These gentle movements are also known to relieve joint pain and heal joint and spinal injuries.
Spinal Stretches
Spinal Stretches help improve your vertebral alignments. Suppleness of the spine is of utmost importance in order to maintain youthfulness as your whole balance arises from your spine. Back pain is often caused when your spinal vertebra go out of position. When the spinal vertebrae are in alignment and have an optimum amount of space between them, the spine remains long and healthy
Positive and Negative Circles
The positive and negative circles represent yin and yang energies and are the alphabetof Chen Style Taiji. Through circles, you learn how to align the body,open the joints and relax the muscles. Not only they enhance physical and mental well-being but also lay the foundation for proper understanding of how T'ai Chi functions as a martial art.

If one is to retain the youthful exuberance, the flexibility of the joints is absolutely vital. If a joint cannot straighten or bend, it indicates that energy and circulation are getting blocked. Every tai chi move is performed with the specific intention of giving your joints a full articulation, a complete range of motion through a circular motion (rotation).
