Not only does it has a positive impact on the heart, bones, nerves and muscles, but also benefits immune system and the mind.
TAI CHI WITH YOGA MAMA WELLNESS
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.
