Tai Chi at Yoga Mama Wellness

TAI CHI

We harness and circulate energy within the body, to create a healthier and stronger being – body, mind and sense of self. Being physically comfortable is the starting point, Then, we use breathing, relaxation and visualisation techniques to prepare and connect with our body. The method also includes other specific exercises to direct energy internally, thus engaging and reinforcing the Dan Dien. (An eastern concept – physical centre of ‘vital’ life energy).

ABOUT TAI CHI CLASSES

We start with Qi gong exercises and the tai chi chuan postures (Yang short form) to strengthen the lower limbs and Dan Dien. While relaxing the arms, shoulders and breathing, we create a general sensation of re-energisation. These slow-moving forms (sequence of steps) assist with posture correction. This also establishes a more efficient use of the body, fluid movement, coordination and increases stability. Although benefits from this work can be felt immediately, greater benefits are gained from a longer commitment to the practice. Most practitioners would say that it’s well worth the effort!

TV Presenter & Writer

My Yoga Mama practice keeps me balanced, energised and sane. It takes a huge effort to drag myself out of bed on a Saturday morning. After practice, the stress and strains of the past week disappear and I feel strong enough to take on the world.

Tai Chi has helped me regain my balance, normal walking gait, confidence and control of my limbs after being diagnosed with a serious neurological illness. The teaching at Yoga Mama is first class and suits all levels of fitness.
