About the Practice of Tai Chi

 Tai Chi is a slow, soft, continuous stepping sequence designed to circulate forces (including gravitational) through the practitioner in such a way that develops bones, muscles, tissues thereby optimizing human movement. 

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 as a result of 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!
