Tai Chi

The Full Story

Tai Chi is a sophisticated art form based on martial arts - now we use it to improve health and energy derived from essential Tai Chi principles. Based on the Sun style of Tai Chi, Tai Chi For Health is easy to learn, effective and safe. It aims to improve flexibility, muscle strength, increases heart/lung activity, aligns posture, improves balance, and integrates the mind and body.


Mindfulness and relaxation of the joints can be achieved through steady progression and perseverance, ideally practicing daily.

How does Tai Chi work?

Every week the class includes warm up and cool down exercises as well as a progressive form that evolves over a 6 week period. Every week adding a new form into a flowing group of movements to complete the group of six and this will enhance everyday quality of life. Mindfulness and relaxation of the joints will be achieved through progression and perserverance.

Giving you part of a whole 12 step form. The first 6 forms are taught as the first group and following 6 classes as form 7-12 continue as a second block. Either or both can be repeated indefinitely.

Please take note of which form we will be teaching every week and ideally come for the full 6 week group.

Teachers often instruct to focus the mind, controlling thoughts and emotions. Re aligning mind and body.

This can be considered to be related to a higher state or awareness.
