Tai Chi

Tai Chi Chuan can be translated as Supreme Ultimate Force. Tai Chi is a Chinese exercise similar to Yoga and Meditation, derived from Taoism one of Chinas oldest belief systems. Many of the movements are derived from Martial Arts there are also sequences of movements called Forms or Sets.

One of the aims of Tai Chi is to circulate the Chi in our bodies promoting the health and vitality of the person. Other aims are to calm the mind, improve balance, body alignment and control of movement. The slow graceful movements of Tai Chi Chuan can lead to one becoming more even-tempered.

After just one class of Tai Chi I can honestly say I have rarely felt so calm and relaxed.
