Basic Principles of Sydney Taiji/tai-chi classes and training
Tai Chi is the ideal exercise for all ages and health status, requiring only an attitude of being open to the teaching and practice; of genuine inquiry, patience and perseverance; and a willingness to examine one’s self and inner conscience.
Health Benefits
As we grow older, our muscles and joints tend to stiffen and our inner energy to decrease. Tai Chi exercises were designed and refined over hundreds of years to counter the effects of age and create a surplus of energy in the body.
Physical and psychological health improves, and spiritual well-being is supported. In the relaxation that tai chi practice brings, harmony and contentment in life is found.
