What is Tai Chi?
Tai chi is an internal martial art that combines philosophy, martial arts, well-being and self-awareness. Considered “moving meditation”, tai chi requires focus of the mind and body synchronized with slow, controlled movements. This low-impact exercise, practised with relaxed muscles, improves natural posture alignment, balance and inner peace.
There are five main family styles of tai chi chuan: Chen, Yang, Wu, Sun and Hao. All five styles have the same origin and share many similarities. However, each style has its own unique characteristics and emphasizes a particular aspect of movement.
