Tai Ji Beginners Class

Course Description

Tai Ji is a Chinese martial art that has become one of the world’s most popular forms of exercise. Underpinned by the ancient Chinese principles of yin and yang, Tai Ji uses soft, slow and continuous movements in order to train the body and focus the mind. Studies have shown that practising Tai Ji may improve one’s health, reduce stress and provide relief for ailments such as high blood pressure and arthritis.

The Tai Ji Beginners course is designed for people over the age of 16 who are looking for low-intensity fitness training and wish to improve their health, concentration and general wellbeing.

The course involves step-by-step instruction that focuses on improving participants’ skills in a friendly and relaxed environment. The class will be small (15 maximum) in order to provide students with the opportunity for one-to-one coaching.

Pre-Requisites: No prior knowledge or experience of Tai Ji is needed.

Further Support: We encourage students to continue their Tai Ji practice at home and offer additional support in a variety of ways. Other support includes:

  • Weekly class outlines
  • Tai Ji DVD, $15 each
  • Tai Ji T-shirt and Tai Ji pants, $15 per item.
  • Individual Tuition: Available upon request.
