    It's an effective way to cultivate chi and improve circulation - thus bringing nutrition balance/health to ones extremities, internal organs, and mind.

    The idea of softness or "soft" energy is found in the cycles of nature. When this concept is applied to the human body, a different kind of physical power is generated which differs from the "hard" type of force. This is a less high impact type of movement for the joints and ligaments in casual practice. This is why it's seen as good for the elderly.

    There are many different styles of "Tai Chi." It is very athletic at the expert levels.

    Lastly, chi not a mysterious thing. It comes from traditional Chinese medicine, and they have a poetic way of describing things such as circulation.

    I am a 16 year chi kung practitioner. While tai chi is chi kung, chi kung is not tai chi.
