Tai chi is a sophisticated and complex art that is the product of centuries of
Chinese physical and philosophical refinement. It is at once a martial art, a system of health and a form of meditation.
Tai chi can be practised by anyone of any age or ability and can greatly improve your health in many ways.
Through gentle movement and standing meditation your body learns to relax, your mind relaxes and your posture improves.You will find you have more energy, better balance and feel stronger and healthier.
Tai chi is an internal martial art and places emphasis on relaxation and posture to achieve power and technique.
Remarkably the same exercises and methods that eventually lead to martial power are also incredibly beneficial to health.
The most important principles in Tai Chi are relaxation and posture. In the stressful and sedentary modern world, it is perhaps the best form of exercise one can do and learning to stand, sit and move correctly will ensure good health long into old age.
