There is a prevailing misconception that Tai Chi is just for the elderly. Don’t let its gentleness fool you; Tai Chi Gold Coast classes will provide you with immeasurable benefits, regardless of your age.
Take our regular Tai Chi Gold Coast classes for improved bone density, joint mobility, leg strength, improved concentration, a more flexible waist and a calmer mind. Work up a sweat while slowing your heart rate and improve your breathing via an increased lung capacity. Practicing martial arts? Our Tai Chi Gold Coast classes will improve your fighting ability by teaching you how to balance your body for maximum energy output, how to deal with oncoming force, and how to achieve external softness while maintaining internal hardness.
Where some external styles of martial arts may focus on generating strength from the arms and hands, our Tai Chi Gold Coast practice is characterised by an emphasis on generating strength from the legs and waist. While in itself it is a very slow practice, Tai Chi can enhance other martial arts practices by assisting you to develop a high level of balance and control. ‘Yang’ style Tai Chi leads with the body and the arms follow the turning of the waist. Within the ‘Chen’ style practice, there is a form that leads with the hands—the body following as though pulled and turned by the force of a strike. In both styles, the waist and lower back play a central role, teaching you how to use your whole body to attack.
