You may have seen people in the park on your way to work and that’s because it’s the perfect way to energise your day. It’s relatively misunderstood by the younger demographic and was actually originally developed as a martial arts system. But don’t worry, you’re not going to be sporting a shiner here!
Tai Chi Australia offer up Beginners Classes spanning 10-weeks and the best part is it kicks off with a FREE introductory lesson so if you find that Tai Chi isn’t your vibe you can walk away. But we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised…
That’s because the benefits that stem from performing Tai Chi include maintaining health and harmony in the mind and body and increasing mental alertness. That’s right, this should be your first port of call in the morning before your daily latte.
Good health depends on harmony and balance, which is what Tai Chi does by balancing Yin and Yang in the human body. Tai Chi also stimulates the internal energy Chi circulation within the body system, which keeps you rejuvenated, refreshed, fit and healthy.

Just bring a fresh mind and some loose clothing (leave the skinny jeans at home) with flat sole shoes and you’re good to go!
