Chinese Art of T'ai Chi Ch'uan
The Taoist Way to mental and physical health
T'ai Chi Ch'uan is the embodiment of the ancient Chinese philosophy of Taoism with a history dating back over three thousand years. Through the cultivation of the natural internal energy of the body or Qi, Tai Chi exercises improve health and increase vitality by aiding regeneration of the body whilst creating a deep feeling of peace and relaxation in the mind.
For sixty years Chee Soo devoted himself to studying and teaching this natural philosophy through the Lee style of Taoist Arts. This book contains the essence of his wisdom, with detailed explanations of movements and stances, philosophical and historical background to the Art, and photographs showing all 140 stances from the T'ai Chi form, this is essential reading for the beginner and advanced student alike.
