Improve your health, well-being, vitality and longevity with Wu Tai Chi.
Tai Chi was developed in China by martial artists who required fighting skills and body and mind in optimum condition. With regular practice, Tai Chi brought the deep and thorough conditioning they sought, but it's been practised far more commonly over the centuries just for the robust physical health and greater awareness of self that it develops.
Tai Chi consists of gentle, flowing movements, known as postures, with the body in alignment and the intent relaxed which serves to calm the mind and the nervous system. When the body and mind gently combine and move together smoothly, it promotes an inner calm, which is why Tai Chi is often referred to as moving meditation.
Why do Tai Chi?
With an established and increasing interest in the West, more and more people are discovering the possibilities that Tai Chi holds for them.
The greater physical awareness and stability developed in Tai Chi reduces the likelihood of accidental injuries, and illness is less able to set in to the body when it is less bound by tensions and functioning nearer its best. Tai Chi is also known to help alleviate chronic conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia and studies from reputable bodies are continuously turning up results about the positive effects of Tai Chi.
Tai Chi is often considered to be a form of 'meditation in motion', promoting inner calm, serenity and peace. This gentle exercise has evolved over the years into an effective means of enhancing health and well-being. Tai chi is performed through a series of postures or bodily movements in a slow, graceful and flowing manner.
