Tai Chi

Tai Chi is an ancient form of exercise originating in China derived from a martial arts tradition but now more commonly used and practiced as a very effective system for attaining optimum health and wellbeing.

The integrated aspects of very deliberate slow co-ordinated body movements (known as the form), standing meditation, and breathing techniques make this a unique way of improving health. As the emphasis is placed on internal structure and co-ordination, and not on developing muscular force, thus cultivating the free flow of internal energy (chi or qi), Tai Chi is accessible to anyone, regardless of age, fitness levels, or background.

Through the regular practice of Tai Chi, balance and posture improve, minor aches and pains can disappear, and the immune system is boosted, as are concentration levels and circulation. The student feels revitalised, with improved confidence and self esteem.

The most popular type in the west is the yang style, which was brought to the west in the 1960s by professor Chen Man Ching, who was a student of Yang Cheng Fu This is the style of Tai Chi that I teach and pass on to my students.

Because of its unique way of working, more and more people are benefiting from Tai Chi. From the stressed out office worker who needs to find a way to relax, to rehabilitation units in hospitals to help aid the recovery process, Tai Chi can have a positive effect on anyone who wishes to practice this ancient healing art.
