Course Description


Tai Chi is a form of gentle exercise based on Tai Chi Chuan, a martial art from China. Originating in ancient China, the underlying principles of Tai Chi facilitate coordination of body, mind and breath to promote health, wellbeing and vitality. This class is meditative, calming, relaxing and fun, aiming to: relieve stress; improve postural awareness; mindfully, naturally and gently mobilise all joints and connective tissues; promote physical, mental and emotional balance; develop the ability to concentrate; encourage improved coordination; and develop overall health promoting fitness without strain. Tai Chi is proven to help with many chronic health conditions, and this class is designed to be accessible, safe and effective for most people.
