What is Tai Chi?
Taijiquan or Tai Chi Chuan is an ancient Chinese Internal Martial Art. Tai Chi is well-known for its health purposes and less for developing combat and self-defence skills. The gentle nature of Tai Chi practice makes it accessible to a wide range of practitioners and has been proven to increase one's health & well-being of the body and the mind.
Meditation in motion
Tai Chi is often referred to as moving meditation. There is growing evidence that this mind-body practice can contribute to healing and preventing many health problems like arthritis, neck and back problems and many other health issues. You can start Tai Chi anytime, even if you aren't in the best shape or the best of health. It's never too late - Now is the right time!
"I started Tai Chi with a knee injury. With every practice, the pain got less. Last Wednesday, my pain was hardly there. With the Tai Chi practice, I hopefully will be totally pain-free soon. Thanks for the encouragement and good teaching, Sifu!"
