Tai Chi at The Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy

TAI CHI

Tai Chi is a combination of moving, standing and sitting meditation exercises. These help those who practise it regularly to become stronger, healthier and happier. According to Harvard Medical School, it is one of the five best exercises. Indeed, scientific evidence verifies the healing potential of this widely practised traditional Chinese system of energy or Chi movements. The latest studies have shown that Tai Chi has a beneficial impact on health. Not only doe it has a positive impact on the heart, bones, nerves and muscles, but also benefits immune system and the mind.

OUR TAI CHI CLASSES

Our Tai Chi classes follow the Yang family system. This is the most widely practised Tai Chi system in the world. The slow natural graceful movements were once used as a powerful martial art system. Nowadays, they are now used to strengthen mind and body and, in addition, to help slow down the effects of ageing.

Our warm down consists of eight Treasures (Ba Duan Jin) Qi Gong. There are eight simple health preservation exercises from The Chinese Health Qi Gong Association. These enhance limb strength and joint flexibility; in addition to improving the respiratory, cardiovascular and immune systems.
