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 is Qigong – a health exercise that improves circulation and brain function while stretching the body. A form of guided moving meditation and a part of the Taiji System.
  • The second half hour is learning the Hunyuan Taiji 24 form, which includes Qigong movement.
