The graceful movements of Tai Chi come from observing nature – leaves falling from a tree, birds gliding on the breeze or water flowing around boulders in a mountain stream.
Originally developed as a form of self defence, Tai Chi is now predominantly practised for its many health benefits. These are extensive and have been shown in numerous studies, and include reduced blood pressure, increased circulation, reduction in symptoms of arthritis, improved sleep patterns, improved health for patients with diabetes and a stronger immune system.
Tai Chi is a series of slow controlled graceful movements, which bring a feeling of peace, relaxation and tranquillity. The movements develop strength, balance, posture, reduce stress and instil a feeling of calm.
