What is Tai Chi?

Tai Chi originated in China as a martial art and in translation means "ultimate exercise". It integrates mind and body and develops both simultaneously.

Tai Chi as it is practised today can best be thought of as a form of exercise and meditation combined. Many of the movements have self defence applications but are performed slowly and gracefully with smooth and even transitions between them.

These slow, relaxed and balanced movements, know as 'THE FORM', require practice and patience to perfect, with the emphasis on accuracy, control stillness, lightness, relaxation and mental focus.
