Tai Chi

Tai Chi, also called Tai Chi Chuan, is an ancient Chinese movement practice, originally developed for self-defence, which has evolved into a graceful form of exercise that's now used for stress reduction and a variety of other health conditions. Non-competitive, self-paced and gentle, each posture flows into the next without pause, ensuring that your body is in constant motion. Accompanied by deep breathing, Tai Chi is often described as meditation in motion, promoting serenity through gentle, flowing movements. Tai Chi has many different styles, or 'forms', each one emphasising different Tai Chi principles. Low impact, Tai Chi puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it generally safe for all ages and fitness levels. In fact, because tai chi is a low-impact exercise, it may be especially suitable if you're an older adult who otherwise may not exercise. Tai Chi can be a positive part of an overall approach to improving health and well-being. Physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
