Introduction to Tai Chi (12pm - 1pm)
Sat 28 January 2017, 12:00 – 13:00 GMT
A Brief introduction to Tai Chi
Tai Chi is a moving Chi Gong, literally meaning internal work, designed to perform natural flowing movements to enhance the natural flow of the internal Chi (Energy). By daily practice, the flow of Chi through all the acupuncture meridians can be increased, improving poor health and increasing strength, whilst inducing a state of calm.
During the class you will learn the basics of the Tai Chi form as both a moving meditation and a physical exercise to develop muscular strength, balance and flexibility. With focus and breath control you will also explore the additional benefits of relaxation and harmonization of the body's natural opposing forces.
When you sign up to the Tai Chi introduction class you will be provided with a learning pack to help further your study. The pack includes Ebooks and Videos of topics covered during the class as well as additional information to help you through your practice at home. Ian will be filming each class for reference as well as providing a line to a private Q&A incase you have any further queries before or after the class.
