Virginia Beach Kung Fu & Tai Chi

Tai Chi for Beginners

After a long, hard day’s work, most people are too exhausted to hit the gym or go for a run. Furthermore, those sorts of intense workouts can be a nightmare for older folks or those with bone or joint issues. Tai Chi is considered a low-impact form of training that’s appropriate for almost anyone. Individuals who are obese, pregnant, or just plain out-of-shape can immediately pick up Tai Chi and experience its benefits. Tai Chi is the only low-impact exercise that has a proven history for reversing the aging process. Not even yoga can compare.

Each movement in our Tai Chi Class helps the practitioner gain awareness of how to release tension, while exercising within a comfortable range of motion. Though most people take up Tai Chi for the tremendous health benefits, others are intrigued by the fact that the style is actually a highly effective martial art. Virginia Beach Kung Fu & Tai Chi is one of the few schools today that can teach the complete system of Yang style Tai Chi.

 

Why Tai Chi

The Chinese have found something that flows through the human body and it is called "chi." In English it roughly translates as "vital energy" or "energy force (sometimes referred to as life force)." This chi flows through a certain path throughout the body that is referred to as meridians. Regular practice of Tai Chi helps open up these meridians so that chi can flow freely throughout the body. Therefore, the first benefit someone will feel from regular practice of Tai Chi is an increase in energy or life force. Set up a free trial class and experience for yourself the great impact tai chi can have on your life!
