Tai Chi

Although Taijiquan is a martial art, many people today call  the art Tai Chi, and practice it in order to relax, and increase their overall health. Tai Chi is frequently recommended to patients by their doctors for prevention and healing of injuries and illness.

People who have existing injuries or medical conditions or increased age, may not be able to do strenuous forms of exercise, Tai Chi, however, can be enjoyed by almost anyone.

Some of the many benefits of practicing Tai Chi regularly, include:

- Decrease in tension and stress

- Increase in balance, strength, coordination and flexibility

- Healing for injuries and other health problems

- Increase in mental focus and clarity

The Taijiquan, (24 Posture) Simplified Form was developed by the People' s Republic of China in 1956, and was derived from the Yang Style Long Form.  It can be practiced in a small area and takes only 6 minutes to complete. Understanding and applying the principles is most important.

32 Posture Tai Chi Sword is one of the many sword forms practiced by tai chi students.

Many people have taken Tai Chi classes in the past and continue to find schools and teachers to assist them in enhancing their practice. 

Learning the form is not difficult provided the student comes to class regularly and makes the effort to learn.        

Practicing outside is ideal when the weather permits!
