Tai Chi For Health

A Tai Chi form is a sequence of several movements in a row, which is carried out in a fixed choreography according to the Tai Chi principles.

There are different Tai Chi styles

Sun Style

The Sun style is particularly suitable for health.

It was developed by medical doctor and Tai Chi master Dr. Paul Lam together with his team of medical specialists and Tai Chi experts.

He called the form ‘Tai Chi for Arthritis’, but it has many benefits for other health issues as well, like back pain, Parkinson’s, fall prevention.

The 24 Form

The 24 form is a Yang style form.

It is the most popular form in the world.

It was developed in 1956 in China by a team of Tai Chi masters to introduce Tai Chi as exercise.

Nowadays it is practised in the parks in China and all over the world.

Tai Chi on the beach

For Tai Chi, the beach at Averof Street is perfect.

There are verandas where we can be protected against the rain and the wind.

Tai Chi on the beach has nice benefits:

  • The fresh sea air is very healthy for your lungs
  • Sea air promotes the concentration of oxygen in your blood
  • It also boosts your immune system
  • The sounds of the sea and the sea birds are sooo relaxing
  • Fresh air and certainly sea air deepen your sleep

Practising on the sand is a bit more challenging, if you like that. Otherwise you can practise on the wood of the verandas.

Tai Chi in the park

The park behind Vodafone is a beautiful place:

  • in the centre of town
  • surrounded by archaeology of different periods of history
  • close to the harbour and the sea
  • there is fresh air from the trees and the sea
  • plenty of space
  • natural (sun)light
  • and the soothing effect of the green environment

Practising Tai Chi in the park charges your energetic system. You are influenced by the energy of the place where you are.

Εxercising outdoors:

  • has a positive effect on your vitality, your enthusiasm, liveliness and energy
  • it increases happiness and improves the immune system
  • it reduces blood pressure, anxiety, aggression and ADHD symptoms

Tai Chi has everything to do with natural movement.

Just like the trees you are firmly rooted in the earth. Your crown reaches up to the sky. You move effortlessly like clouds that pass silently in the sky.

Private lessons

Some people just prefer private lessons.

Or perhaps it is impossible for you to come to the outdoor lessons.

Advantages of private lessons:

  • there can be more attention to your personal needs
  • learn at your own pace
  • adjusting the movements to your individual capabilities
