WHAT IS TAI CHI?
Originally in China it was taught as a martial art and it’s been more recently introduced in North America as a system of exercises for improved health, mobility, flexibility, balance and relaxation. The therapeutic benefits of Tai Chi are many, and when taught properly it also has a profound impact on the mind helping students improve their concentration and experience lower stress.
Benefits of Tai Chi
Research done at Harvard University and Mayo Clinic (top scientific centers in the US) has shown that Tai Chi can reduce stress and anxiety while improving balance and flexibility. It can also improve motor control in Parkinson’s Disease and help people with arthritis, cancer, heart disease, hypertension and stroke. Lastly many of our students have shown great improvement in the following areas:
The Tai Chi Chuan style that we teach is known as the traditional Yang family-style. Along with it’s many variations it’s currently the most popular and widely practised style in the world today. It’s also the second oldest style among the main five family styles. The classes we provide are without any changes or additions to the forms and style. We teach in the pure and pristine fashion as it was taught in China by the Yang Family for generations because the teaching method is important to prevent injuries and to draw the maximum therapeutic benefits.
