What is tai chi?

An art embracing the mind, body and spirit.

Originating in China, tai chi (sometimes referred as as ‘taiji’ or ‘tai chi chuan’) is composed of slow, gentle and focused movements, accompanied by deep breathing. Each posture flows to the next and your body is in constant motion.

Often described as moving meditation, tai chi promotes serenity. The focus is to enable the qi (life force) to flow smoothly throughout the body. This creates harmony and integration of the mind, body and spirit. Tai chi is a way of life.

When you begin to practice tai chi you start a life long journey towards better health.
