TAI CHI a healthy form of exercise

If I had my way, I would take up Tai Chi. From what I read it is something that could very well enhance my journey towards complete healing.

"Tai chi is a Chinese martial art that is primarily practiced for its health benefits, including a means for dealing with tension and stress.

Among the martial arts, there are two basic types: the "hard" martial arts and the "soft" martial arts. The latter are also called internal arts. Examples of the hard martial arts are karate and kung fu (or wushu). Examples of the soft martial arts are ba gua and tai chi.

Tai chi emphasizes complete relaxation, and is essentially a form of meditation, or what has been called "meditation in motion." Unlike the hard martial arts, tai chi is characterized by soft, slow, flowing movements that emphasize force, rather than brute strength. Though it is soft, slow, and flowing, the movements are executed precisely".
