Tai Chi is an ancient discipline and martial art that integrates mind, body and spirit.

It’s Therapeutic benefits include general improvements in physical and mental health including stress relief, heart health and high blood pressure, chronic pain and arthritis, insomnia and digestive problems.

Tai Chi also helps improve and maintain balance, flexibility, muscle tone and general mobility of all joints as well as co-ordination and general relaxation and meditation. It also aids recovery after illness and strengthens internal organs. It may also help multiple sclerosis and migraine.

Tai Chi Practioners use deep breathing and meditation as you move through a series of continually flowing exercises (or Forms).

Tai Chi 8 Form is a good starting point for beginning to understand the basics and Yang style Tai Chi, and to benefit and enjoy its therapeutic and relaxing effects. We teach the 8, short and sword forms. It is always best to practice a Form after some warm up and Qi Gong exercises.
