Master Yang teaches you the meaning of every tai chi movement in a one-on-one private tai chi class. Tai Chi Chuan is a kind of moving meditation with ancient roots in Chinese martial arts. Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming is a world acclaimed master of Tai Chi and Qigong, and he personally guides you through a series of easy-to-follow Tai Chi movements. Dr. Yang's tai chi lineage can be traced back to the Yang family through Grandmaster Kao, Tao (高濤) and his teacher Yue, Huanzhi (樂奐之), an indoor disciple of Yang, Chengfu (楊澄甫).

This app gives you free videos, and offers an opportunity to get the full Part 1 video at the lowest possible cost with a single in-app purchase. Practice Master Yang's popular Tai Chi exercises using your phone or tablet. This is a convenient training tool you can bring anywhere, to access this amazingly powerful exercise whenever it fits best into your day.

In the videos, Master Yang will teach you Part One of the Yang Style Tai Chi form. Students will often spend years repeating this section, before moving on to Parts 2 and 3.

Whether you are a beginner or a Tai Chi master already, these amazing exercises offer the perfect combination of relaxation and full-body exercise. You'll enjoy reduced stress, a stronger immune system, and a deeper awareness of breath and body coordination.

Tai Chi, or Taiji, is short for Tai Chi Chuan, or Taijiquan, which translates from Chinese to “Grand Ultimate fist”. Tai Chi is an internal-style Chinese martial art that can be traced back to the Chen family, the Daoists at Wudang mountain, and ultimately to Shaolin Temple.

"The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi" says: "regular practice leads to more vigor and flexibility, better balance and mobility, and a sense of well-being…Tai Chi also has a beneficial impact on the health of the heart, bones, nerves and muscles, immune system, and the mind."

When practiced slowly for health purposes, Tai Chi is a type of Qigong. Qi-Gong means "energy-work". Qigong (chi kung) is the ancient art of building the body's Qi (energy) to a higher level and circulating it throughout the body for rejuvenation and health. Some Qigong is practiced sitting or standing still, while other Qigong can be a kind of moving meditation. This gentle Qigong exercise is a highly effective way to reduce stress, increase energy, enhance healing, and generally improve your quality of life.

Qigong increases the quantity of energy in the body and improves the quality of your circulation through energy pathways, known as meridians. Qigong is sometimes called "acupuncture without needles."

Similar to yoga, Qigong can stimulate the entire body deeply with low-impact movement and develop a stronger mind/body connection. The slow, relaxed movements are widely recognized for their health benefits, strengthening the internal organs, muscles, joints, spine, and bones, and developing abundant energy.

Qigong can be effective in helping people with insomnia, stress-related disorders, depression, back pain, arthritis, high blood pressure, cardiovascular system, respiratory system, bioelectric circulatory system, lymphatic system, and digestive system.

Thank you for downloading our free app! We are striving to make the best possible video apps available.

Idc if you have to buy all the videos for 10 bucks. I care that the whole form isn't on one app and I've got to install several and probably pay on each one before I get the full form. Too much space wasted and at that point you might as well put it all on one app and charge 30 bucks or however much at once. Seems deceptive and wasteful. Uninstalling

Simple and also very detailed. The videos are easy to follow any yet there is a lot of practical knowledge contained therein. It would be easy for me to watch a video multiple times to work on various aspects of each movement.
