About Tai Chi
Originating in ancient China, Tai Chi is a graceful form of martial arts that today is practiced primarily for its health benefits, which include relief from stress and anxiety. Emphasising total relaxation, Tai Chi can be perceived as a type of meditation, and in fact it has been referred to as “meditation in motion”. Movements, which are gentle, flowing and slow, draw on internal force rather than brute strength. Through repeating these specific motions, the individual aims to harmonies mind, body and spirit.
Those who practice Tai Chi are likely to get stronger, and have less anxiety. It also helps you move freely and gracefully, improve balance and enjoy more flexibility. Tai Chi is all about the journey, the middle ground, the constant movement of life flowing from one situation to the next. It is the micro-connections that smooth out all movement, allowing the breath and “chi” (or energy) to move through the body like water flowing naturally around a rock. Deflective, powerful and centring, Tai Chi hones our awareness of these micro-connections and is often referred to as “a moving meditation.”
