What is Tai chi?

Tai chi is also called meditation in movement. Tai chi provokes an internal massage of your body, total relaxation and natural breathing. Tai chi contains elements of self defence. It’s a martial art.

The USC course Tai chi: how does it work?

  • Course of 9 classes of 1 hour.
  • The course starts 4 times a year.
  • Everyone can join the course I. You don’t need any experience.
  • To join course II, you’ll need to complete course I first.
  • You will learn the first series of consequent movements of Cheng Man ch´ing (Yang style). To the extend of your competence of the movements, you will perform these movements in the ‘flow’ and as a ‘standing posture’. While ‘posturing’ you will practice each movement as good and as relaxed as possible.
  • You will get instructions according to the so called shape correction. Of course you will be guided in the learning process of new movements leading to a total of 37 movements.
  • You can join the free meditation class, every Tuesday 18.30 – 19.00 at USC Body & Mind.
