This step-by-step guide--filled with photos and grids to help beginners position themselves accurately--will start novices on their way to optimum health and well-being. It covers tai chi's history and philosophy, key principles, and modern interpretations, along with more than 200 simple moves, all accompanied by specially commissioned photographs that lead newcomers through the popular Short Yang Form in its entirety. There's also important guidance on proper breathing and the mental focus required to keep "chi" (internal energy) moving smoothly through the body.
