Tai Chi

Renae Covey, Tai Chi for Health Instructor. Her accreditation is Tai Chi for Arthritis, Diabetes, Yang And Qi Gong.

Renae has been instructing very successful classes for quite some time and is hoping to restore people’s health and vitality with this slow and steady form of gentle exercise.

Tai Chi originated in ancient China and is an effective exercise for health and wellbeing. It is a series of gentle, graceful movements designed to exercise the body and clear the mind. Studies have shown that practicing Tai Chi improves balance. Other benefits claimed for Tai Chi include better mood, with lower levels of stress and anxiety.

Tai Chi exercises every muscle and tendon in the body gently while not increasing the heart rate. It is said that these slow exercises, by inducing relaxation into the heart and blood vessels increases the capacity of the heart and lungs to take more blood around the body. Thus more cells of the body get more life-giving oxygen, enabling them to live longer in a healthier state.
All ladies and gents are enjoying their classes and any new members are always welcome.

The Tai Chi demonstration at Mt Pleasant Shopping Centre on the 22nd August for Seniors Week was very well received. Tai Chi beginners class at Studio 53 is expanding rapidly with new members coming along each week. Tai Chi advanced class at Yogi Space is completing 73 form. The ancient practice of Tai Chi is clinically proven to be one of the most effective exercises to improve health, wellness, fitness and relaxation.
