What we're about

Tai Chi Chuan (or Tai Chi) is a slow-motion, moving, meditative exercise for relaxation, health and self-defense. Originally from China, Tai Chi has gained enormous popularity for its health benefits.

Like a precious diamond, Tai Chi has many facets. As a health exercise it has no equal. As a physical manifestation of Taoist philosophy, it engages the mind to reflect upon the rhythms of nature and seek accord with them. As a stress relieving therapy, it leaves the practitioner refreshed and centered, ready to face whatever difficulties their day or their life may bring.

It has been said that whoever practices Tai Chi diligently, twice a day over a period of years, will attain the pliability of a child, the health of a lumberjack and the peace of mind of a sage. With Tai Chi you are able to kill two birds with one stone: you maintain your health in general, you improve your body posture, and you keep calmed.
