Tai Chi at the Memorial Hall (Thursday mornings)

Tai ChiWhat is Tai Chi?

Tai chi is an ancient exercise which embodies China’s most profound concepts and principles of health and movement. It offers true harmony between body and mind.

Based on softness and awareness instead of force and resistance, tai chi (also referred to as tai chi chuan, taiji, or taijiquan) has been recognised for centuries as a method of self-cultivation and an unexcelled form of self defence. In Chinese, tai chi means “Supreme Ultimate.”

Tai chi movements are widely acknowledged to help calm the emotions, focus the mind, and strengthen the immune system. Practiced at a slow and even speed, tai chi promotes relaxation, straight posture, and balance. In a very real sense, tai chi helps us to stay younger as we grow older, thus making an outstanding contribution to our overall health and well-being.

Tai Classes take place most Thursday mornings between 11.30 and 12.30 at Shiplake Memorial Hall. For further details contact Debbie Page on 07802 347943 or by e-mail.
