Tai Chi is practiced for its health benefits and as a form of defence training. We teach Yang style Tai Chi and our foundation practice is taught at two levels.
Tai Chi level one teaches students Qigong exercises and the Tai Chi form.
Qigong practice lies between meditation, martial arts and Traditional Chinese medicine, and as an exercise deeply relaxes and reduces the effects of stress and tension inside the body to improve overall health and well- being.
The form is composed of a sequence of movements based on the fundamental practice of Qigong and the Tai Chi concept of applying the thirteen postures or simply directions of force.
Tai Chi level two teaches pushing hands and application.
Pushing hands develops sensitivity, allowing students the necessary ability towards the application of Tai Chi as an internal art.
