The answer to this question lies in another question, “What are you looking for?
If you are not happy with any area of your life today, then Tai Chi can help you.
The majority of the articles shroud the understanding of the art of Tai Chi in mystery.
Your own body’s internal energy (Chi energy), plays a vital role in the quality of your health. Chi energy is with you from the day you are born until the day you die. A person with a highly developed Chi energy through practicing Tai Chi experiences very few illnesses. That is what we are all working towards.
Most of us understand how our blood flows through our body and have a basic understanding of how our organs work.
Did you know that a person with highly volatile emotions, often has stagnation in the liver and gallbladder? The stagnation I am talking about is the stagnation of your Chi energy. This is because the flow of your body’s internal energy is not moving freely around your body and nourishing your organs properly.
The movements of the Tai Chi Form start to work on the development of your internal energy (Chi) from your very first lesson.
Our movements are simple to perform and once learned and practiced regularly, the health benefits will last you a lifetime.
To progress in any area of your life, your mind needs to be calm. If you are tense ideas will not flow freely and you will find the act of daily living a strain.
Because we teach these traditional movements in a modern way, you will find that your mind becomes calm, as you learn the mechanics, your balance and co-ordination will also improve.
This is because your mind is pleasantly occupied with the constant repetition of trying to perfect the simple movements
Another vital aspect of our Arts is correct breathing, yet most of us go through our lives without even giving it a second thought. When I was at school I was taught to breathe in and pull everything in. If we analyse what is actually happening to the lungs when you use this type of breathing you will find that only the upper part of the lungs are being used.
This allows toxins to form and build up in the lower part of the lungs. If you watch a baby breathing you will notice that their stomach appears to expand as they breathe in and contract as they breathe out, this type of breathing allows the whole of the lungs to be used correctly.
When your lungs are working correctly, this helps the rest of your body to work efficiently, your blood will flow freely and your body’s natural energy (Chi) will move around your body; taking care of your inner well being.
You will also find that your mind is more alert and ideas flow easily to you, providing solutions to areas of your life which may be causing you strain. People who suffer from breath related ailments such as asthma have found great benefit from practicing Tai Chi .
Because the movements of Tai Chi are gentle and practiced without strain they are suitable for everyone. We encourage people to progress at their own pace.
Remember if you are feeling under pressure in any area of your life today, your mind, body and spirit are not in complete harmony.
