Recently we opened a new Tai Chi for beginner class at the Aldinga Community Centre. We are really grateful to see, through Tai Chi, people are connected. Social connection is an essential part of our Tai Chi class. After all, who doesn’t want to have some good times while getting fit and healthy? To make our Tai Chi class better, we are always keen to listen to your questions, feedback and suggestions.
“What is Tai Chi?, how can Tai Chi help me?” , Do you have questions like this?
First of all, Tai Chi is an ancient exercise/art, using slow and mindful movements to connect body and mind based on traditional Chinese medicine and Taoism (or Daoism, which is not a religion) philosophy/wisdom.
Tai Chi has superior healing power. An article posted on TIME written by Markham Heid named “Why Tai Chi is as good for you as CrossFit” can be found at my website under https://meridian-connection.com.au/knowledge/articles/. Very interesting. If you like CrossFit, you can try Tai Chi to complete your CrossFit experience; if you don’t think you can do CrossFit, well, you know what, we still believe you can do Tai Chi! Everyone can do Tai Chi, as millions are doing it right now.
Don’t just believe what I say, look at some of the most influential research, such as the Cochrane review- Gillespie systematic review. The Cochrane Collaboration is an independent, international organisation involved in preparing, maintaining and disseminating systematic reviews evaluating the effectiveness of health-care interventions. Tai Chi is clearly stated as an effective activity to reduce the rate and severity of falls. As you know, everyone can fall at some stage in life, right? Fall can affect our life dramatically. Now we know Tai Chi can prevent fall and make our lives less dramatic and more joyful.
All these studies have made Tai Chi to become one of the most popular exercise choices for Centre of Disease Control in the USA among other National health organisations, such as Arthritis Foundation, Heart Foundation etc.
Tai Chi can make you feel ultimate deep relaxed and connected with nature. Tai Chi can also bring you calm and clear mind during its slow and gentle movements. When life throws you a heavy hurdle ( as we all have had or will have), tai chi is there to help you stay grounded and to heal, live and grow positively.
We look forward to connecting with you soon.
To your health,
Fang & Team
