Tai Chi comes in many shapes and forms, schools and styles. It originally started, centuries ago, as a martial art in China. Some folklore suggests it was developed for sedentary monks who needed to exercise in their breaks from their very long meditations!
For the last hundred or so years it has been practised solely for health purposes.
Often called "moving meditation" Tai Chi is a collection of graceful, slow, flowing movements designed to support mental and physical health and wellbeing. It's not competitive and doesn't require specialist equipment. Our classes are always friendly and questions are encouraged.
We are always super welcoming - we don’t get hung up about special words or clothes.
If you’re thinking it’s time you invested a little more in your wellbeing, please do consider Tai Chi. If you need more information we’re always happy to answer questions – no strings attached.
If you do find a class you like, please be sure that you ask your instructor about their experience and share with them what you are hoping to get out of the class.
From time to time, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on Tai Chi on this blog.
For now, I leave you with one thought – is it time you found Mindful Exercise with Tai Chi?
