Tai ChiTai Chi, also known as shadow boxing, is an internal martial art that originates from ancient China. Now it is practiced throughout the world as an effective exercise for health. Tai Chi consists of fluid, gentle movements that are relaxed and slow in tempo. Breathing is deepened and slowed, aiding visual and mental concentration, relaxing the body and allowing the life force, or “Qi,” to flow unimpeded throughout the body. It can be practiced almost anywhere and is a suitable form of exercise for just about anyone, regardless of age or fitness level. Tai Chi is a powerfully holistic approach to better health.
Tai Chi has been shown in many scientifically valid research studies to improve many aspects of health. The practices are easy to learn and become a way of life for many practitioners.
Several styles of Tai Chi are taught at Quakertown Wellness by instructors from the Silver Lotus Training Institute. All classes place emphasis on maintaining health and wellness. Classes are fun and relaxed, and we use a stepwise progressive method of teaching the forms that makes them easy to learn.
