Tai Chi is Healing

About our Tai Chi Program

At it’s centre, Tai Chi is about balance.

Tai Chi is about an internal balance of mind and body as well as finding emotional balance in our life. It is about finding balance with what’s happening inside you with what’s happening outside you.

Tai Chi improves muscular strength, balance, mobility, and stability and can help relieve pain, release stress and improve quality of life.

  • Muscle strength is important for supporting and protecting joints and is essential for normal physical function.
  • Flexibility exercises enable people to move more easily, and facilitate circulation of body fluid and blood, which enhance healing.
  • Fitness is important for overall functioning of the heart, lungs, and muscles.

In addition to these components, tai chi movements emphasize weight transference to improve balance and prevent falls.

Emotional health and balance is essential to our well being. If you find your thoughts and emotions are getting the best of you, finding balance and peace inside and taking care of our core needs like rest, sleep, connections with friends and loved ones, nutrition, exercise and mindfulness help form a centre of calm that helps you move through life’s stresses and conflicts more peacefully.

Tai Chi is based on the dynamic relationship between yin and yang. Moving meditation.
