The flowing movements of tai chi contain much inner strength, like water flowing in a river, beneath the tranquil surface there is a current with immense power — the power for healing and wellness.
Tai Chi for Health – For Everyone
Tai chi is a simple, easy to follow form of exercise that everyone can take part in. It’s gentle flowing gestures are learned through repetition, easy instructions from the teacher and by breaking the moves down into small components. There is no impact, no increase in heart rate and can even be done seated in a chair.

What is tai chi?
There is much more to tai chi than one can see, and virtually no one can describe such a complex art in one simple sentence. Yes, it’s aesthetically pleasing, easy and enjoyable to practice. It can be a meditation and an integral exercise for all parts of the body and the mind. It brings tranquility and helps you think more clearly. Tai chi can be many things for different people; regular practice will bring better health and wellness.
With consistent practice, people will be able to feel the internal energy (qi 氣), convert it to internal force (jing 勁) and use it to generate more internal energy. This process would greatly enhance tai chi development, leading to a more balanced mental state; at the same time your fitness, agility and balance will improve. The unique feature of tai chi is that it is internal. Internal means building the inner strength from inside out, therefore you can continue to develop at any age.

A week ago today I completed my Tai chi course taught by Jennie. In these hour classes you are taught in stages how to move in a flowing style from one posture (or form) to the next. We analyse, practice and repeat these forms and learn what these beautiful movements are.
I left each class feeling more confident with my newly taught abilities passed on to me by my great teacher and I also felt very calm and relaxed.
This course I think, is great for people wishing to aquire a new skill, meet new people and for learning how to meditate whilst moving. I miss attending classes but I can now take Tai chi wherever I go. ***** Highly recommended!
