Telisha Tai Chi
Tai chi is a traditional martial art that combines physical, external movements with the meditative internal to create many health benefits.
Tai chi is good for balance, co-ordination, flexibility, muscle strength, cardiovascular health, relaxation and general well being. It is a gentle exercise and is accessible to all which makes it adaptable to suit all ages and abilities.
As a martial art it is characterized by offensive and defensive techniques, through practice one can learn the movements as self defence. Whilst appearing gentle and calm as well as being a perfect way to relax the mind and body, Tai chi can defeat a powerful opponent through various movements and techniques.
It is a demanding activity in terms of body strength, balance, co-ordination and flexibility, each of these become more apparent with practice. The mind and breath are connected to each Tai chi movement so that strength is maximised in unity.
