The ‘T'ai Chi Ruler’ or T’ai Chi Chih is a system of Taoist Yoga, or Qigong using a specially designed wooden ruler derived from the shape of the ancient Chinese sword handle.
The exercises were created around 100 A.D., and are based entirely on natural principles, the T'ai Chi Ruler imparts holistic fitness and integral strength.
T'ai Chi Ruler is a complete system - just as Hatha, Kundalini and Shakti are complete systems - that integrates the mind and body to purify the human spirit.
T'ai Chi Ruler imparts holistic fitness and integral strength, and an excellent foundation for T'ai Chi Ch'uan or any martial art practice.
The T’ai Chi Golden Ruler has seven “internal” basic exercises and eight advanced exercises. The exercises are performed in repetition with the ruler held between the palms on a meridian point called the pericardium point. Each exercise specially coordinates movement, breath, mental, and visual focus along the energy meridians of the body, cultivating the body’s energy or chi.
The T’ai Chi Golden Ruler aligns and empowers major energy reservoirs, or “Tan Tians”, and energy meridians of the body. This Chinese energy philosophy somewhat parallels the human sympathetic nervous and cerebral-spinal systems.
T'ai Chi Rulers are available for purchase, and are required.
