Tai Chi Chuan is a martial art of taoist origins, and one of three main soft, or internal, martial arts styles of China. The particular variant of Tai Chi taught is the short Yang form, pioneered by Professor Cheng Man Ching.
Tai Chi Chuan training emphasises the principles of relaxation, proper joint alignment, correct breathing and energy flow through the practice of the empty hand form, the sword form, and push-hands play.
Tai Chi Chuan training is suitable for all ages and fitness levels, and caters equally to serious practitioners as well as individuals seeking a unique way to relax, destress, and above all, have fun.
Benefits of Tai Chi include improved circulation, balance, coordination, flexibility, mental clarity and relaxation.
Tai Chi Chuan training is currently offered in personal training sessions, by appointment, for individuals or small groups (of up to 4 people).
