Tai Chi

In Tai Chi, slow flowing movements that follow a set pattern, allow participants to harmonise mind, body and spirit and become more deeply centred in themselves. Tai Chi is often linked with martial arts but it is more like moving meditation. The emphasis is not on strength or exertion but on relaxation, concentration and balance, along with correct breathing. After much practise, the participant can become one with the movements, so they are actually happening through them. Tai Chi is excellent for those who have high blood pressure and heart complaints, tension and anxiety, as it promotes and maintains good health both physically and mentally.
