Tai Chi Chuan is an internal martial art used by the Chinese for thousands of years as a vehicle for self-cultivation and self defense. An exercise of the body, mind and spirit, Tai Chi Chuan consists of slow and even movements relaxing the body and the mind, promoting the flow of vital energy, and replacing stiffness with flexibility and body co-ordination.
Tai Chi Chuan is an exercise that may be practiced by anyone. It is non-strenuous, relaxing and graceful. Tai Chi Chuan benefits the student by promoting a better metabolism. Soothing the central nervous system, Tai Chi Chuan promotes relaxation, improves blood circulation, and increases the flow of oxygen through slow, deep, and coordinated breathing. This messages the internal organs, promotes digestion, and eliminates stress through relaxation. It leads to more graceful, effortless movement in your everyday life.
