**New Tai Chi Beginners Courses in Plymouth, Ivybridge & Tavistock**
Tai Chi Chuan (Taijiquan), or just 'Tai Chi', is a profound form of martial art that has been used for centuries as an effective form of self-defence. Today however, its health benefits have been studied in more detail and Tai Chi is increasingly used as a popular method to improve posture, balance and to strengthen the body.
Radiant and firmer skin, an increase in immunity to disease and reduced arthritic symptoms are just some of the reported benefits. The gentle, slow and circular movements of Tai Chi, gently relieves tension, stress and relaxes the muscles. Major and minor muscle groups are coordinated in movement for a holistic, total body workout. Major organs such as the liver, kidneys, spleen, vascular and digestive systems are massaged to bring optimum health by allowing the body to restore, heal and energise itself with regular practice.
