Oxford Taijiquan & Qigong

Chen Style Taijiquan and Qigong

Following the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Taijiquan (tai chi chuan) 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, 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 is a profound training which has martial, medicinal and meditative elements. 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.

These classes cover a comprehensive range of activities to cultivate good health of mind and body and, if desired, self defence capabilities, including:
