Tai Chi Ruler 

For serious Tai Chi players, Yoga practitioners, and those interested in a transformational Chi Gung or Qi Gong exercise, the Tai Chi Ruler is an essential practice tool. Measuring about one foot by two inches in diameter, it is held between the hands while the user performs a set of movements, usually called the Tai Chi Ruler Form.

  • Promotes better internal and external balance.
  • Releases the natural flow of the life force, or “Chi,” from blockages.
  • Helps correct posture while moving through the form.
  • Enhances the fluidity of energy exchanges between the right and left brain.
