Tai Chi and Tai Chi beginners – Tai Chi classes on Friday mornings, at 9am and also 10.30am.
Taiji Quan is taichi chuan rendered in the Pinyin system of spelling Chinese which has replaced the
more familiar Wade-Giles system previously used. Yang family style taiji quan has enjoyed a high
reputation as a martial art and general health and exercise regime for more than a century and its
origins are far older. It involves moving through a series of specific postures at a slow constant pace
without tension in the body or limbs. It seeks to achieve a harmonious state of being, between
movement and stillness. People continue to practice taiji because taiji:
· gently exercises the entire body
· improves balance and coordination
· strengthens muscles, joints, organs and bones
· soothes and relaxes the body and the mind
· helps prevent illness and heal injuries
· enhances and regulates natural vitality
There are no belts, gradings, certificates and so forth, students advance at their own pace.
Everyone is welcome and everyone can benefit from taiji quan.
