We teach Taoist Tai Chi™ arts: a moving meditation – build your strength, flexibility and stillness.
Summary: The ancient Chinese believed that true health comes when body, mind and spirit work together in harmony.
Taoist Tai Chi™ arts grew out of this tradition and are a way to develop a body that is strong, yet supple, a mind that is calm and clear and a spirit that is light and peaceful.
Taoist Tai Chi™ arts involve deep stretching with a full range of motion and continuous turning of the spine. They exercise the whole physiology including muscular, skeletal, and circulatory systems, as well as tendons, joints, connective tissue and organs. Rather than depending on tension and the development of hard muscle tissue, these arts develop a body that is relaxed and strong at the deepest levels. The gentle internal movements are balanced throughout the body and have a calming effect on the mind. Taoist Tai Chi™ arts are truly a moving meditation.
In a new Beginners Class participants will be introduced to the 108
movements of the Taoist Tai Chi™ set. Classes are weekly and run 1.5 hours. Most locations offer a variety of class times so that there are opportunities for people to be able to fit a class into their personal schedule. People are welcome to attend as many different beginner classes as they would like. At the beginning, the main goal is to start to gently exercise and to relax. We try to keep the atmosphere light and enjoyable, so you can feel comfortable progressing at your own pace.
You can come along to any of our Beginners classes at any time.
Come and look – come and try.
