The practices that are known as Tai chi (or Taiji) or Qi Gong, evolved in China as a form of martial art. In the west today they may be practised either as a martial art, or as a way of maintaining physical coordination & flexibility as well as internal health. Both approaches have significant and well-researched health benefits even at an introductory level. An analysis of health benefits can be found on the website www.taichiwalking.com
Tai chi literally translates as ‘the supreme ultimate’ and can be considered a subset of the more general range of Chinese exercises called Qigong (which itself can be translated as ‘energy or life force cultivation’).
Please book early as spaces are very limited for tai chi courses.
