About the Practice of Tai Chi

 Tai Chi is a slow, soft, continuous stepping sequence designed to circulate forces (mostly gravitational) through the practitioner to develops bones, muscles, tissues thereby optimizing human response. 

Health Benefits

Tai Chi is about moving.  The 108 moves of the 'set' are performed in a variety of postures.  The postures are aligned with gravitational forces to protect the anatomical structures.  Therefore, all the benefits of moving are available such as:

  • Balance

  • Flexibility

  • Body Awareness

  • Resilient Strength

In addition, Tai Chi provides:

  • a Brain Exercise by challenging the memories of the postures and developing neurological connection such as through propioception

  • A Meditative component resulting via ie: continuous flow of movement, gaze, slow speed

  • An aerobic exercise due to the sustained 25-30 minutes required for the completion of the 108 moves of the set

These health benefits are usually noticed within the first two months and can continue to enhance health for a life time!
