Tai Chi, or Taiji, is short for Tai Chi Chuan, or Taijiquan, which translates from Chinese to “Grand Ultimate fist”. Tai Chi is an internal-style Chinese martial art that can be traced back to the Chen family, the Daoists at Wudang mountain and ultimately to Shaolin Temple.
"The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi" says: "regular practice leads to more vigor and flexibility, better balance and mobility and a sense of well-being. Tai Chi also has a beneficial impact on the health of the heart, bones, nerves and muscles, immune system and the mind."
When practiced slowly for health purposes, Tai Chi is a type of Qigong. Qi-Gong means "energy-work". Qigong (chi kung) is the ancient art of building the body's Qi (energy) to a higher level and circulating it throughout the body for rejuvenation and health.
Qigong increases the quantity of energy in the body and improves the quality of your circulation through energy pathways, known as meridians. Qigong is sometimes called "acupuncture without needles." Qigong can be effective in helping people with insomnia, stress-related disorders, depression, back pain, arthritis, high blood pressure, cardiovascular system, respiratory system, bioelectric circulatory system, lymphatic system and digestive system.
The slow, relaxed Tai Chi movements are widely recognized for their health benefits, improving your balance, strengthening the internal organs, muscles, joints, spine and bones and developing abundant energy.

Ratings and Reviews
Dr. Yang is the real deal!
5* for impeccable instruction from the revered Master who holds and can teach the « secret » like none other. See entire form in rear view, best way to practice without distraction of mirror image. Will rate this app w 5* rating for a VR updated version. Keeping screen right in front of your eyes as you move all around would be the ultimate! Please please update to VR!!!!
Note: FYI here is quote from the about section “Dr. Yang's tai chi lineage can be traced back to the Yang family through Grandmaster Kao, Tao (高濤) and his teacher Yue, Huanzhi (樂奐之), an indoor disciple of Yang, Chengfu (楊澄甫). “
Dr. Yang is the real deal.... we are truly blessed to receive his teachings.
This app works great. I've had it for years and it gets better w every update. This is real tai chi by a traditional master. Excellent teaching, great quality, option to stream or download, great value for 2.5 hours.
It’s great that YMAA is making their most popular instructional videos available as an APP. Hours of instruction broken into useful segments allows for choosing what I want to study a breeze. The footage is high quality, the audio is very good, and it even comes with English subtitles if you need them. Overall, this is the best instructional APP for learning Tai Chi that I have seen.
