YOGA AND TAI CHI
Prepared by: Instructor- Shyam Sundar Shrestha.
Yoga: The word yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root ‘yuj’. It means union, join, bind, or communion. It is true union of our will with the will of god. Here god means not person it is symbol of supreme ultimate power or force.
Tai chi chuan or taijiquan: Its literal meaning is ‘supreme ultimate fist’ or internal martial art.
Yoga is from India and tai chi is from China. The similarities between tai chi and yoga have both school of thought are practiced in ‘chi/prana’ or soul. Their methods are designed for meditation, self-awareness and enlightenment. In essence, their systems are designed to bring the mind and body into harmony. Yoga and Tai Chi both allow the individual to proceed at their own pace and level of ability. Both require very little equipment, and results can be felt immediately. Both result in increased energy, flexibility and a positive, healthy attitude.
