Tai Chi is a slow and gentle weight-bearing exercise taught as a sequence of graceful and slow movements that relax and strengthen both body and mind, a moving meditation.

The goal of Tai Chi is to return the body to a state of youthful functionality and develop a clear and uncluttered mind.

Practised by milions of people over the centuries, Tai Chi has been proven helpful to the health of the body and mind.

Those who practice regularly find improvement in their flexibility, balance, immune function, cardiovascular function and motor co-ordination.

They also report reduction in stress and anxiety levels, increased ability to relax, better concentration and focus, improved memory and an enhanced sense of well-being.

The Angus Tai Chi Academy teaches a style developed by Master Moy Lin-Shin.

This form of Tai Chi can increase the student’s circulation and flexibility, leading to improved health and a greater sense of well-being.

The Academy’s weekly classes are relaxed and friendly and suitable for people of all ages and levels of fitness. For further information, visit www.angustaichiacademy.org.uk or call 01356 622684.
