Tai Chi is an effective exercise for the health of mind and body. With ongoing practice it can be an art with great depth of knowledge and skill, but it can also be easy to learn and soon delivers its health benefits.
Tai Chi for Health is not offered as a martial art but for its health benefits .The programme is based on Tai Chi Chuan — the physical form rather than the philosophical practice. Essential principles include the integration of mind and body; fluidity of movement; control of breathing; and mental concentration. The forms have been specially adapted for conditions such as arthritis and osteoporosis and may be performed seated if necessary.
