BEGINNERS PROGRAMME

Beginners courses, accessible to all ages from children at age 8 on up to seniors even at an advanced age and with no experience whatsoever, as Tai Chi is one of the few health related activities that can truly improve health and stamina even for people with little muscular strength. If you can stand up, you can do Tai Chi

CHI KUNG
Literally translated, Chi Kung is “Energy Work”. This is a standing meditation that develops a quiet mind and energy in the lower “Dan Tien”, therefore increasing one’s overall vital force.

TAO YIN
This is a series of 12 fundamental exercises for the development of the muscles, joints, nervous and circulatory systems necessary for greater flexibility, balance and proper posture.

FUNDAMENTAL FORM
This is a short sequence of 20 pre-established movements aimed at developing dynamic fluidity and softness and for activating the internal flow of vital energy for optimum health maintenance.

TRADITIONAL LONG FORM FROM THE YANG FAMILY
This is the traditional form with 108 movements for the development of the natural flow of vital energy (Chi) in the body. It is comprised of three parts: earth – heaven – man.
