Tai Chi Chuan is an ancient Martial Art that strives to cultivate the mind and the body through martial training, meditation and exercise.
When practiced regularly, Tai Chi provides extraordinary health benefits, improves balance, flexibility and strength while calming the spirit and reducing stress.
Much of Tai Chi is practiced in a slow, mindful way which provides a good workout without inflicting high impact stress on the body. This makes Tai Chi accessible to everyone, including those recovering from injury or suffering from joint conditions. However, some of the more advanced forms of Tai Chi Chuan involve explosive movements and are focused much more on the martial aspects of the art.
