Tai Chi Chuan is a gentle exercise, a moving meditation, a martial arts system and a life philosophy. It originated in a Daoist monastery in China as an internal martial art practised for self-defence and spiritual cultivation. It has evolved into a part of modern life, but still continues the wisdom of the ancient masters.
As an exercise Tai Chi builds the mind-body connection through slow, flowing movements and co-ordinated breathing, with a focus on relaxation, balance, joint health, correct alignment and smart body mechanics.
STUDIES ON THE BENEFITS FOR VARIOUS CONDITIONS
“The art is to find balance in all things. There is no poison that cannot aid health in the right circumstances and no ‘virtuous substance’ that will not be poisonous in excess. Physical and psychological well-being requires moderation. Whether it is the health of the individual, nation or planet, if the balance is upset, misfortune will result”.
