What is Tai Chi?

Tai Chi is a dynamic form of moving meditation which helps bring about calm and peace of mind whilst gently exercising the whole body. It stresses the principles of relaxation and yielding, and the cultivation of inner strength and harmony of both body and mind.  The practice of this art brings us into balance with ourselves and those around us.  It is a form of "inner" martial art.

The art of  Tai Chi Chuan (Supreme Ultimate Fist) emerged initially within China during the middle of the 19th Century, yet the principles upon which it is based go back into antiquity.  Tai Chi is now widely practised and taught in every major country of the world. It’s principles and methods make it readily accessible to people of all ages and ability.

Benefits of Tai Chi and Qigong:  

  • greater relaxation
  • reduced stress
  • improved health
  • inner calm
  • improved confidence
  • self defence
  • greater ability to smoothly deal with change and life challenges

Tai Chi offers a wealth of benefits much needed in todays hectic world. Where modern life is fast paced and stressful, Tai Chi helps us to slow down and re-balance ourselves.  When we can't seem to switch off and our mind is spinning, this art can help us to return to a calm, peaceful state free from worry and anxiety.
