Frequently Asked Questions
What is Tai Chi ?
A Tai Chi "Form" is a series of slow, smooth steps and gestures that uses the entire body, gently exercising every muscle. It is a carefully choreographed sequence of movements, paying much attention to basic principles of posture, movement and breathing. It has been practised in China, where it originated, for hundreds of years, becoming increasingly popular in the West since early in the 20th century. Many different Forms exist, and two are taught at these classes, the "Bejing 24 Step Short Form", suitable for beginners, and the "Long Yang Small Circle Form", suitable for both beginners and more advanced students.
