Taoist monks are thought to have observed the natural movements of animals to form the movements of Tai Chi. They incorporate the Taoist meditative practice into moving postures, which together create what is called the soft or internal form of martial art exercise. Chinese philosophy also considers Tai Chi to be the place from where yin yang originates. It is stated that from a state of stillness motions arises.
