Tai Chi for Health
I’m a Tai Chi for Health Institute Board Certified Instructor who has enjoyed playing tai chi for many years, learning from instructors in Geelong, Perth and Sydney.
A few years ago I trained as a Tai Chi for Health instructor with Dr. Paul Lam and Master Trainers from the Tai Chi for Health Institute in Sydney, and regularly attend workshops to update my skills.
I’m currently sharing my enjoyment of Tai Chi in Perth’s northern suburbs including Wanneroo, Merriwa, Banksia Grove, and Joondalup.
Who can do tai chi?
Tai chi is a gentle form of exercise practiced by people all over the world. The Tai Chi for Health programs are suitable for just about anyone, men and women; they are easy-to-learn, safe and effective for health. No special equipment or clothing is needed; participants wear comfortable clothing and shoes such as runners. Exercises can be done standing or seated so the programs are ideal for people with restricted mobility.
Classes are open to any suitable person, provided they are medically fit, are independently mobile and can participate without assistance in the class.
What are the benefits of tai chi?
Tai Chi has been shown to have many health benefits including:
- Reducing pain and stiffness
- Improving flexibility, mobility and balance
- Promoting relaxation
Scientific studies show that tai chi can help reduce pain and stiffness felt by people with arthritis. The movements gently exercise most of the muscles and joints throughout the body and can improve flexibility, mobility and balance. Tai chi promotes relaxation and has been found to improve overall health and wellbeing.
Classes normally run for 10 week terms, however if this arrangement is not suitable we can discuss other options.
Classes can be run at our venues or yours.
