Tai Chi

Tai Chi is a gentle exercise form where participants move in an upright posture, in a slow and controlled manner. It can be practised standing or sitting. It exercises the entire body, all the joints, muscles and internal organs. It enhances the Qi (氣) or life energy.

Practising tai chi enhances our health and wellbeing and is particularly effective in improving arthritic stiffness and developing better balance. Tai chi calms the mind, helps to relieve stress and promotes a sense of harmony and wellness.

Above all, tai chi is safe, easy to learn and can be practised anytime, anywhere.
