Tai Chi for Health

Tai Chi for Health Institute

What is Tai Chi?

Tai Chi originated in Ancient China as a well known form of Martial Arts. It is more popularly known today as a practice that promotes health and wellness.

It can be thought of as 'Meditation through movement' combining gentle continuous movements of the body with controlled and relaxed breathing techniques. 

Through Tai Chi we can learn to become more energised, calm and balanced. 

Tai Chi for Health Programmes have been modernised incorporating medical science to deliver health benefits quicker.
