welcome to today's tai chi

Tai Chi is the practice of slow deliberate movements that combine mental concentration and physical fitness.  It can be practiced by people of all ages, skill sets and physical fitness levels.  The gentle movements have low impact on the joints and are easy to learn.

Although Tai Chi is a martial art, it is mostly practiced today for the vast health benefits which come from the deep relaxation and breathing that bring internal awareness to both mind and body.  The principles of Tai Chi are based on the philosophy of Yin Yang, the Five Element Theory and Traditional Chinese Medicine.  Tai Chi is a holistic approach to wellness including mind, body, and spirit.  It offers a natural alternative treatment to many common health problems.

Why Study tai chi?

Tai Chi offers a unique form of exercise that helps to maintain and develop stability, balance and flexibility. 

It is an exercise that can be beneficial for everyone.  Including those who are in top physical condition to elderly people with a reduced range of motion.

Several studies have shown that daily practice of Tai Chi can help reduce stress, anxiety and improvements in cognitive abilities. 

Tai Chi is founded on a principle of softness overcoming hardness.  No matter what physical shape a person is in, their physical tension can be reduced through the intentional practice of Tai Chi, thus increasing their strength and stability.

There are 5 main styles of tai chi in the world today
