Harmony Tai Chi is like the rhythmic dance of the four seasons – sprouting, expanding, harvesting and then returning to the root – capturing the gracefulness and meditative benefits of the popular Yang style, power generating aspects of the Chen style, and the agility of the Wu style. The first easy-to-learn 18 steps of the 108-step Harmony Style Form are graceful movements for balance, peace and vitality. In this DVD, students are introduced to the spiritual names, principles and virtues of each movement. This practice is ideal for those seeking to cultivate their chi and people of all ages and abilities.
