About Tai Chi
Tai Chi Chuan means nothing, it begins with nothing, from nothing there begins something until something happens. It is Tai Chi.
Tai means: big, just, great, grand.
Chi means: ending, beginning, top, ultimate.
Chuan means: “fisted hand”.
Originally derived from martial arts, the slow graceful movements also, in places reflect the natural movements of the animals and birds, as symbols or “pictures”, designed to focus the mind and breathing through a complex series of executions.
Although it retains its fighting applications, it’s practised for improving ones health, concentration and mind/body co-ordination.
Tai chi ring => consists of round, circular motions, the body seem to float up and down, leading to a perfect balance of body and mind.
With its precise control of breathing, tai chi increases our energy flow which leads to self healing and body regeneration.
As such Tai Chi is suitable for people of all ages.
The philosophy of Tai Chi aims to build from small to paramount, to create something out of nothingness; it concerns one plane of existence to the whole universe. It is all Tai Chi.
