Tai Chi For A Healthy Body, Strong Heart, And Sharp Mind

Main Stage

A Tai Chi demonstration by master instructor & head coach Allan Kelson and his team from the Tai Chi & Chi Kung Institute of Australia. Originally developed for self-defense, tai chi has evolved into a graceful form of exercise that’s now used for stress reduction and a variety of other health conditions.

Often described as meditation in motion, tai chi promotes serenity through gentle, flowing movements.

Tai Chi is a major branch of the traditional Chinese sport of Wu Shu. As a means of keeping fit, preventing and curing diseases it has been practiced since the 16th century. Its prime purpose is to promote health in a slow relaxed manner, without jarring and hurting one’s body. The movements are slow, with great emphasis on posture and balance.

The exercise requires a high degree of concentration, with the mind free of distractions. Breathing is natural, sometimes involving abdominal respiration, and its performance is in rhythmic harmony with body movements.
