Austin Tai Chi Classes Lead to Increased:

Tai Chi has taken the world by storm as the fastest rising health practice. It has been around for almost 1000 years as a martial art, but is now used around the world for personal development, health cultivation, and mind-body balance. People of all ages practice the slow graceful movements of Tai Chi Chuan. In the Austin Tai Chi Classes we have students from the 20's through the 80's learning this ancient art form.
The magic of Tai Chi is the combination of mental and physical development. Every modern study about aging and the brain has supported the step by step approach of Tai Chi to prevent age-related mental impairment and physical decreases in balance and postural control. It has been shown to help with Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Osteoporosis and many other health conditions.
The most important part is that is fun to learn, relaxing and energizing to perform, and fascinating enough to keep you practicing it for many years of your life. This is what makes it the best possible exercise to carry you through the years of your life.
Keep in mind that Tai Chi Chuan was developed as a martial art. Tai Chi was created by a fighter who wanted to be a better fighter. The graceful movements and focus on body control will refine your ability to move well and bring added sophistication to your fighting skills. If you are fan of martial arts you will love it for that reason as well!
Tai Chi Chuan is mediation in motion that promotes health while reducing stress. Our Tai Chi instructors teach deep breathing, relaxation and improved balance. Austin Tai Chi classes encourage the joy of living “in the moment” through this moving medication. Tai Chi Chuan uses slow and gentle movements to reduce stressful thoughts and anxious body feelings. You will experience the 2000 year old Chinese philosophy behind the Tai Chi movements and the powerful and energizing experience of Qigong.
