What is Tai Chi?

Tai Chi is an internal Chinese martial art that executes the yin and yang philosophy, the martial art equivalent to Yin Yoga. It is believed that if you react to a violent attack with an equally violent attack, serious injury will be done to both sides. That’s why in tai chi classes in North East London, students are taught skills not just for relaxation but also to counterattack an incoming force with subtle and soft movements. Although tai chi was developed as a martial art, it is primarily practiced today for its health benefits. As a low-impact exercise, it won’t put much pressure on your bones and joints. Everyone can take beginner tai chi courses in North East London regardless of age, gender and fitness levels. If you've been practicing for a while, advanced classes are available too!
