What is Tai Chi?
Tai Chi Chuan (translated supreme ultimate boxing) is one of the finest products of Chinese philosophy and culture. Tai Chi is based on the principles of I Ching (Book of Changes) and the philosophy of Yin and Yang which means we must maintain a balanced way of life. Tai Chi is an internal exercise program which consists of slow, relaxed, flowing balanced movements.

In China, millions of people practice Tai Chi everyday to obtain relaxation, increase concentration, improve overall health and to tone the body.

Tai Chi exercises the cardio-vascular system by increasing the circulation of blood and oxygen to all parts of the body. The combination of turning, stretching and twisting movements work to release tension and allows every part of the body to be exercised without strain. Concentration, coordination, flexibility and balance will improve over a period of time and many degenerative and stress related conditions are relieved by practicing Tai Chi daily. The ability of Tai Chi to rejuvenate rather than exhaust, makes it a valuable exercise program in our active and fast paced society.
