How Does Tai Chi Work?

An effective exercise for health should improve muscular strength, flexibility, and fitness. Tai Chi is proven to do all of these and more.  Additional effects include improved relaxation, balance, posture, and immunity.

Studies have shown that the Tai Chi for Health programs relieve pain, improve physical function, strengthen muscles, improve quality of life and balance and prevent falls.

What to wear?

What is Tai Chi?

Tai chi originated in ancient China; it improves health and wellness and is practised throughout the world. There are many forms of tai chi with significant differences to each other. Each form and style has its own special features. Tai Chi for Energy is designed so that almost anyone can learn it easily.

What is Tai Chi for Energy?

This program consists of two different tai chi styles.  Chen style tai chi is vigorous and 

sophisticated, containing fast and slow movements along with powerful spiral force.  

Sun style includes a unique qigong (life energy) along with agile steps. 

These two seemingly contrasting styles of tai chi have complementary internal energy.  Using his deep understanding of tai chi principles and with over 30 years of experience, Dr Lam carefully composed the Tai Chi for Energy set by combining both styles to bring you greater synergy.

With regular practice and in a relatively short period of time, you will achieve better health and wellness, more internal energy and an improved ability to manage stress.

The program contains warm up and cool down exercises and 16 movements.
