What is Tai Chi? In simple words it is an ancient Chinese practice utilizes slow, consistent and flowing movements to stretch and strengthen various muscles in your body.
It’s based on the knowledge that a person can control certain aspects of their body to help promote inner healing - both mentally and physically. Tai Chi moves are designed to stretch and strengthen your muscles and bones.
By performing special Tai Chi exercises within the program, you can tighten up loose muscles and alternatively, loosen up muscles that are too tight! Your muscles are then strengthened to allow for more endurance, which helps prevent any injuries.
If you suffer from some pain in the joint areas, you can use Tai Chi exercise to increase your range of motion within those joints, diminishing some of the pain. Your muscles become more flexible and can endure more activity.
If balance becomes a problem for you, use the Tai Chi workout that is designed to train your body to work from its center to provide stability for your body at all times. It will strengthen your core more each time you practice it.
Balance within your mind can also be achieved through the use of Tai Chi. When you succumb to stress; your mind takes the brunt of it. If you learn Tai Chi you will focus your energies - not on the stress - on relaxation and inner peace, which slowly build a sense of calm and diminishes any anxiety you may have felt previously.
Many Tai Chi participants report that they’re able to get out of their mental fog, which may be a result of the oxygen flow that this exercise promotes. Aside from the mental perks, it also helps your organs function optimally.
Certain diseases or medical conditions can be greatly improved through the use of Tai Chi. If you have high blood pressure, for instance, the exercises you learned in Tai Chi lessons can help stabilize it to more normal levels.
It’s also beneficial in giving your immune system a much-needed boost. Tai Chi is more a way of life than an exercise. Traditional exercises are for building muscles, increasing blood flow as well as burning calories.
Tai Chi exercises do that, too, but it also does so much more. It works - not just the physical aspects of your body - but the mental ones as well. It benefits the whole package instead of just focusing on one area of improvement.

Are you looking for explanations for the upheaval and disasters we witness all over our planet right now? Are this signs for the Mayan end of the world?

Solar storms threaten earth in 2011Over the past few days 3 huge explosions happened on the surface of the sun. This might mark the start of the solar storm warning NASA scientist gave out for 2011 and 2012. The solar storms which will reach earth this week could affect and disrupt communications and GPS satellites. The expected level of the geomagnetic storm is moderate to strong.
The sun is at the high point in its roughly 11-year cycle of activity, in other words its solar maximum. Between now and 2013 it can get really rough and overall the danger is becoming more critical. A huge solar storm 1859 like could cause up to $2 trillion in damage globally.
With significantly increasing solar activity and geomagnetic storms, strong risk patients should try to avoid any physical stress. Although influences of solar activity on the human organism are still controversial, there are convincing studies on this, which certainly should not be underestimated. Intense geomagnetic storms might increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
Thanks to the new NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory Solar Satellite (launched into space in February 2010) we are provided with constantly new spectacular images of solar phenomena as well as faster and more accurate warnings.
