About Tai Chi & Qigong


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 suggests 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 a number of Tai Chi styles, such as Yang, Chen and Wu, which are named after the families from which they originated – this syllabus originates from Yang style Tai Chi.

Qigong refers to a broad spectrum of practices (which can include Tai Chi) and includes static postures, movements, breathing exercises and meditative practices used to cultivate and balance life energy, especially for health and wellbeing.
