Taoist Tai Chi Society of Canada – Sarnia Chapter
Good Health for Body and Mind
The Taoist Tai Chi Society internal arts of health is a gentle set of 108 movements and foundation exercises that promotes health and well-being for people of all ages and in all health conditions. It is distinguished at the physical level by stretching, full range of motion and the continuous turning of the waist and spine in order to exercise the whole physiology, including the tendons, joints, connective tissue and internal organs. At the mental and spiritual level it tames the heart, developing an attitude of calm, compassion and reduced self-centredness, both during practice and in daily life.
Through Tai Chi internal arts of health, and through other activities, we endeavour to make the richness of Chinese culture more accessible and thereby promote greater understanding and respect among people.
Health recovery classes are specialized classes which enable people with chronic illnesses, or those who are recovering from injuries, to incorporate Tai Chi internal arts of health into their recovery as a complementary therapy, adapting movements for reduced mobility.
