Tai Chi provides the non impact exercise alternative to help relax your body and replenish your energy in a natural, holistic way. Using a phased training approach, Tai Chi is a valuable form of non-impact exercise and an internal art of health that is adapted to any health and fitness level of need. The Taoist Tai Chi Society is a vibrant non-profit organization with more than 40,000 members in 30 countries. Their mission is to bring the health benefits of tai chi to all people. The society is very popular in Canada and is growing rapidly in Europe. Taoist Tai Chi was developed by Moy Lin Shin to promote health and well-being for people of all ages. This art is a very effective form of holistic health training taught in a relaxed, club-like atmosphere by accredited volunteer instructors.
The benefits of Taoist Tai Chi are improved circulation, balance, increased strength and flexibility, plus reduction of stress. A beginner can expect three to four months of classes to learn the gentle movement sequence.
