Taichi is a Chinese fist fighting technique with around 400 years of history. It trains both the mind and the body. Taichi movements resemble remedial gymnastic exercises that are combined with a gentle style of martial art/self defence.
Graceful movements train body awareness, release tensions, improve circulation, strengthen the inner organs, encourage healthy breathing, energy and strength, and serve to prevent or treat illnesses. Taichi can be learned and practised at any age.
The goal of the taichi beginner course is to teach the correct body/hand/arm postures and techniques, as well as practice basic taichi positions, steps and movements. Explanation of appropriate breathing techniques as well as a small, well-known sequence with 10 movements round off the programme.
We teach the so-called Yang style, which features particularly gentle and evenly flowing movements.
