Tai Chi Introduction
Tai Chi Chuan is a holistic martial art seeking to use internal energy (‘Chi’) for good health, self-development and self-defence. It is adaptable to many levels of health and fitness, including beginners.
Tai-Chi exercises and routines become like moving meditation, allowing practitioners to increase their awareness and well being.
What do I need to practice?
All you need are comfortable loose fitting clothes and indoor shoes or socks. Socks are fine to start with and if you decide to practice Tai Chi for the long term then you can purchase Tai Chi slippers.
Qigong for Health
This ancient Chinese system of exercises builds up health by massaging the internal organs and opening up the joints to allow the free flow of ‘Qi’ (energy) within the body. In this class Grandmaster Lee will explain the Chinese concept of Qi and how it relates to the body.
He will also show students how to:
- tune up their Qi
- function their Qi
- move their Qi
- build up their energy system
It will be of benefit to those recovering from serious illness such as surgery, physical injury, chemotherapy etc or those seeking renewed vitality and health. It is a gentle class suitable for all ages.
