There are many styles of Tai Chi Chaun. Tai Chi Chuan forms can range from a very athletic form to a slow deliberate moving form. Yang style is slow, big movement and flowing form.
Tai Chi Chaun’s health training, therefore, concentrates on relieving the physical effects of
tress on the body and mind. It brings about mental clam and clarity. Researchers have found that Tai Chi Chaun practice shows some favorable effects on the promotion of balance control, flexibility and, cardiovascular fitness. Regular practice of Tai Chi can significantly increase psychological well-being including reduction of stress, anxiety, and depression.
Tai Chi Chaun is a form of self-defense. Tai Chi Chaun is the study of appropriate change in response to outside forces. It is designed to yield to an incoming attack rather than attempting to meet it with opposing force.
For more information about the Yang Tai Chi Chaun (see www.yangfamilytaichi.com). In general, Tai Chi Chuan does not require a uniform, but loose, comfortable clothing and flat-soled shoes (inside only) or socks is adequate. I look forward to see you in one of the new class.
