The art of Tai Chi is a practice of mindfulness in motion. Students learn techniques with names such as Grasp Bird's Tail, White Stork Cools it's Wings, Wave Hands Like Clouds. Over time, these movements are strung together into a form or routine. With years of self-awareness, patience and practice, the gracefulness and fluidity of Tai Chi rise to the surface.
