About the Practice of Tai Chi

What is tai chi?

A soft, slow, stylized stepping sequence that moves through postures designed to enhance health and well-being by cycling primarily gravitational force through the practitioner.

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 memory of postures and the sequence of the 108 moves in the choreography of the 'set'

  • A Meditative component as a result of the continuous flow of movement

  • 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!
