About taichi, Wikipedia has this to say:

"[It] is a type of internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits....especially known for being practiced at what most people categorize as slow movement......characterized by the use of leverage through the joints based on coordination and relaxation.

 

It is purported that focusing the mind solely on the movements of the form helps to bring about a state of mental calm and clarity."
