About Tai Chi


Tai Chi originates from Chinese martial arts and is widely practised for health and wellbeing. It is also known as  Tàijí, T’ai chi ch’uan or Tàijíquán.

As a mind and body practice, Tai Chi promotes relaxation and awareness, and improves mobility, posture, balance, co-ordination, strength and stamina. Research also suggests the practice of Tai Chi may help with a variety of health conditions. As an internal martial art, Tai Chi  can be developed and enjoyed over a lifetime.

There are many different Tai Chi styles, such as Yang, Chen and Wu, which are named after the families from which they originated. This syllabus comes from a branch of Yang style.
