Welcome to Tai Chi Foundations
A research based programme of Yang Tai Chi movements that will build strength, improve balance and promote a deep sense of relaxation.
Qigong is the modern term for an ancient set of health exercises collectively called Daoyin.
Daoyin exercises integrate mindful practice with a elegant and balanced flow of the whole body with gentle awareness on the breath.
|Daoyin Tu - Wellcome Trust, London|
These exercises have their origins in a range of health and wellness practises called Yangsheng - 养生 - meaning to nourish or cultivate life.
Coordinating the mindful movements with our natural breathing cycle creates a deep sense of relaxation and wellbeing.
The scroll above illustrates a Daoyin chart excavated from the Mawangdui Tomb 3 (sealed in 168BC) in the former kingdom of Changsha, called 'Guiding and Pulling Chart'.
