About Tai Chi

Tai Chi, T’ai chi ch’uan or Tàijíquán originates from Chinese martial arts and is practised as an exercise for health, wellbeing, meditation and self-cultivation. As a mind-body practice, Tai Chi promotes relaxation, stress reduction and a sense of inner peace, as well as improving our physical balance, mobility, co-ordination, strength, stamina and suppleness. Research has also suggested Tai Chi may help improve a range of common health conditions. As an ‘internal’ martial art, Tai Chi can be developed and enjoyed over a lifetime.

There are several styles of Tai Chi, such as Yang, Chen and Wu, each named after the family name of the founders from which they originated – our syllabus comes from a branch of Yang style, from Cheng Man-ch’ing, Huang Sheng Shyan and subsequent generations of teachers.
