A Brief History of Tai Chi

  • Throughout history, Tai Chi has been used by Chinese scholars, monks, sages, artists, intellectuals, emperors and their imperial guards, princes and commoners, because of its extraordinary versatility and proven effectiveness.
  • Whilst drawing from all the strands of Chinese spiritual and philosophical thought, Tai Chi is not tied to any religion or dogma, but is available to any interested student.
  • Practitioners of yoga, dance or other martial arts often find that the internal and flowing approach of Tai Chi perfectly complements their own training.
  • The first half hour, we will work on Foundation exercises that prepare the body to be physically able to move correctly to perform Taiji.
  • Included are “Silk Reeling”, “Circles” and how to move correctly to have correct structure and balance.
  • The second half of the class is the Hunyuan 24 and is a repeat of what is done for Taiji on Monday.
