Play Ball Tai Chi

A ballgame of focus, coordination and balance.

Play Ball Tai Chi

Play Ball Tai Chi is a playful mind body practice created on the beaches of Aruba. In Play Ball Tai Chi, series of movements, called sequences, are combined with tossing a ball from one hand to the other. Typically, Play Ball Tai Chi invites the practitioner to create new moves, sequences and variations of ball tosses. The spirit of Play Ball Tai Chi is egalitarian, inclusive and cooperative. Play Ball Tai Chi welcomes body awareness, curiosity and a sense of meaning as routes to personal satisfaction and sustainable practice. Play Ball Tai Chi can motivate frequent physical activity and stress relief, in work, school and life.
