An Overview of Tai Chi

Tai chi, also called tai chi chuan, is characterised by its slow, graceful, continuous movements that are gentle on the joints and muscles. Done correctly, you'll find that the tai chi poses flow smoothly from one into another. Many movements are completed with bent knees in a squat-like position.


  • Improve and maintain health
  • Help to achieve a state of physical and mental relaxation
  • Strengthening the cardiovascular system.
