The research results show that, first of all, the dialectical thinking of yin and yang and its movement characteristics in Tai Chi culture are closely related to the human body's essence and health. With “living waist” as its core, Tai Chi featuring loose, quiet, and softness has the effect of enriching the innate essence of the human body, and by regulating the spleen and stomach and transporting the subtleness of the water valley, it can nourish the acquired essence of the human body. Secondly, the abdominal breathing of Tai Chi allows the innate air (inner air) and acquired air (outer air) to open and close with movements, so that the clear air in nature is continuously taken by the human body. The process of “combining with Qi” realizes the integration of the nervous system, respiratory system, and self-mood. Thirdly, the Tai Chi movement can nourish the mind and mind, realize the peace of mind and body, the peace of the self and the state of life, and through the adjustment of the nervous system, promote the “Shen” state of the human body, and realize the harmony of mind and health.
