[prMac.com] Antwerp, Belgium and Herzelia, Israel – Zhen Wu LLC announces this week’s launch of Taichi Temple, the first motion sensor app for tai chi, offering a revolutionary new way to de-compress, relax and exercise all at the same time. Powered by state-of-the-art Extreme Reality technology, this app offers an innovative approach to learning tai chi with authentic roots in traditional Chinese martial arts. Available April 16th for all iPads on the iTunes Store, Taichi Temple is the cool, new way to find flow through moving meditation.
In under two hours, users will have a solid overview of tai chi fundamentals, including correct breathing, postures and movement terminology. They can then customize their training and track daily progress. The Extreme Reality motion technology monitors in real time how well they are syncing with Master Li, using only the iPad webcam. Users have an authentic master of tai chi as their own personal coach any time, anywhere.
Taichi Temple is perfect for people on the go who are looking for a modern way to reduce stress and exercise at the same time. The app teaches natural breathing, balance and mental concentration through low-impact qi gong and tai chi exercises. Originally developed in China as a highly effective martial art, tai chi contains potent health benefits and has been scientifically proven to lower blood pressure and improve circulation and balance. Tai chi is now being practiced by people from all walks of life, from professional athletes to cancer survivors to legions of dedicated park practitioners all over the world.
