Good health comes from body, mind and spirit working together in harmony.
Tai Chi is a way to develop a body that is strong yet supple, a mind that is calm yet creative, and a spirit that is peaceful yet resilient.
Tai Chi involves stretching with a full range of motion. All parts of the body are involved: the musculoskeletal and circulatory systems, the tendons, joints, and organs. Rather than using tension to develop large muscles, Tai Chi fosters a body that is relaxed and strong at a deep level. The gentle movements are balanced and have a calming effect on the mind. It is truly a moving meditation.
Relief from pain and help with chronic conditions
While most people who practice Tai Chi find that their energy and wellbeing improve, research has shown that it also benefits people with health problems such as heart disease, stroke, Parkinson’s, joint pain, asthma, anxiety and depression.
Any of the movements can be modified for people with painful joints or decreased mobility.
