Tai-Chi is about foundation work. It focuses on strengthening the legs, opening the hips and correcting structural issues with posture. This allows the upper body to straighten up and relax giving it an oppurtunity to heal. One should think of the feet, legs and hips as the foundation for the upper body which is the house where we live, if there is a problem with the foundation then there is going to be problems with the house.
