Tai Chi (Taiji Quan)
Tai Chi Sifu Kong Tai Chi is one of the many forms of the “Wushu” that literally translated means “martial art”. Therefore, originally Tai Chi is a fighting sport. Nowadays however it is mainly regarded as a movement art. There are various styles in Tai Chi, but in the West people mainly practice the Yang Style. This style is characterized by slow movements that flow over into one another and that have a positive influence on the balance between body and mind. In daily life this balance sometimes is upset, resulting in fatigue and physical problems.

By regular exercise Tai Chi may help to restore the balance between body and mind and to combat fatigue, stiffness and stress. Because Tai Chi is based on balance and harmony, and not on speed and strength, it is extremely suitable for elderly people. Tai Chi has a positive influence on the health and is therefore, to put it in a nutshell, ideal for both young and old as well as for healthy and less healthy people. Tai Chi is the Chinese national sport, but also in the West it has got hold of a good position.

 Why Tai Chi?

Tai Chi Chi Gong 2007

In Tai Chi the movements are made slowly and fluently which stimulates the blood circulation and results in a better energy flow through. Muscles and joints are being used but will not be overloaded. The posture results in relieving the spinal column. The breathing is calm and relaxed. Learning and performing the movements requires concentration which is important for calming the mind and which therefore can be profitable in daily life.
The coordination is improved and the complex movements are healing for the central nervous system. Because of the specific way of moving, whereby moving the body weight is required, the balance may be improved and the risk of injuries resulting from falling may be diminished.

By moving combined with concentration the balance is improved, from a physical as well as from a psychological perspective.

And last but not least; it is also just fun to learn something new and to do something with other people.

The lessons are given in small groups. You don’t need to buy special sportswear. Comfortable clothing and gym shoes or sports shoes with a not too thick sole suffice.
 Tai Chi also for 50 plus
