Tai Chi has always been a firm favourite of mine, both for its graceful movements and the sense of wellbeing and calm it brings to life. I am qualified for Chen Style Tai Chi and Qi Gong and the main focus of the classes will be for the health benefits, rather than the martial arts aspect.
Tai Chi is a noncompetitive Chinese martial art that is known for its health benefits. It consists of a range of gentle exercises which promotes mobility, flexibility and strength for the entire body. It promotes vitality and helps the body to repair itself after injury.
Tai Chi is excellent at alleviating stress and anxiety through regular practice. It is a moving meditation that allows the mind to calm down and maintain a positive outlook. Chen Style Tai Chi, when taught in conjunction with Qi Gong (breathing techniques) forms a comprehensive health system that can be practiced by all ages.
