At The Tai Chi Centre we practice Yangjia Michuan Taijiquan (YMT). In our regular classes we start with tai chi exercises that increase fitness, develop flexibility, and skills through movement, relaxation, and breathing. We then learn tai chi moves, which are connected together into the form, attention being given to the application and meaning; with experience this can include the sword and fan. Here the class divides into beginners, intermediates and experienced. Finally there is push hands, which develops a deeper understanding of relaxing, sinking, being centered and self-defence. Our classes involve a high level of one to one tuition for beginners, and demanding routines for the experienced. Tai chi brings better health; regular practice is required to gather, maintain and develop its benefits.
