Taiji (Tai Chi) and Qigong (Chi Kung) Classes in Oxfordshire
The life enhancing benefits of Taiji (Tai Chi) and Qigong (Chi Kung) are well documented and increasingly supported by research in the west. Current research has proven the beneficial and therapeutic benefits of these disciplines.
Following the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Taiji and Qigong seek to restore and regulate the flow of ones Qi (Vital energy) and blood. This is achieved through a combination of mindfulness, correct postural alignment, relaxation and deep abdominal breathing. A specialised form of effortless movement, called Chansijin (also known as Silk- Reeling), is learnt which unifies and integrates the entire body-mind. The primary aim is to develop ones ‘Internal Strength’ in order to enjoy an enduring and healthy life.
Taiji (Tai Chi) is a profound training. The consequence of practice is a gradually more developed state of awareness, and the ability to be more attentive to both our internal and external reality. Unlike other forms of exercise Taiji and Qigong require students to practice in the most unhurried, gentle and relaxed way possible in order to gain maximum benefits.
The Three Treasures School of Taijiquan offers regular Taiji and Qigong classes throughout the County of Oxfordshire including Oxford, Wallingford, Watlington, Didcot, Henley-on-Thames, Steventon, Warborough and Charlbury. Some classes may incorporate the self defence aspects of the art, while others are only concerned with cultivating good health. Some classes are specifically for the over 50s.
