Course Overview

Tai chi (taiji) and Qi Gong (chi kung) are life enhancing arts which have been practised for centuries for health, self defence and personal development.

Tai chi and Qi Gong exercises are low-impact, slow-motion mind-body exercises that can improve a person’s general functioning and quality of life. The health benefits include enhancement in muscle strength, more vigour and flexibility, better balance and mobility, and a sense of well-being and confidence.

This programme is designed to enable the student to gain an appreciation of the practices required within a traditional Tai chi and Qi Gong training programme. The training programme is based on the Chen style Tai chi system that originated in the Chen Family Village, Henan province, China.

The Tai chi & Qi Gong exercises are suitable for everyone, the young and the not so young. They are safe and no fancy equipment is needed, so it’s easy to get started – just wear loose comfortable clothing and flat shoes. This class is suitable for both beginners and improvers. 

The student will be introduced to the following:
· Exercises for loosening joints
· Breathing technique for relaxation
· Standing Meditation for conditioning the mind and body
· Introduction on Tai chi philosophy
· Perform a set of Tai chi and Qi Gong routines to consolidate the above and to produce health benefits mentioned above.

By completing this 10 week programme, the new student will have acquired the basic skills to enable them to be able to relax and cope better with daily stresses.
