Tai Chi is for every age, body type and fitness level. It is a meditative form of martial arts which is recognized as one of the oldest exercise systems in the world. It comprises of slow, gentle and rhythmic movements designed to gradually enhance relaxation, inner peace and calm.

It is also classified as “Meditation in Motion” and is one of the most accessible exercises that can be practiced by almost anyone, irrespective of age or gender.

Tai Chi is gentle, but powerful.

Students who have been practicing Tai Chi for months say that it’s more than just a form of exercise, it’s actually a framework that teaches one to “live a life of fulfillment.”

In classes, we take you through a complete step-by-step process that encompasses the full scope of Tai Chi Forms and Movements. True progress in the method requires commitment and practice.

The classes are conducted by Master Cicily Thomas who has completed her training in China under Grand Master Fu Sheng Yuan and under his son Fu Qing.

She has been teaching Tai Chi and Qigong in Bangalore for the past 2 decades.

The classes are conducted online with our experienced instructor and an awesome group of cheerful people.

Here’s What Our Students Have to Say About Us:

I was suffering from chronic backpain and used to be bed-ridden for 10 days at a stretch. I used to take pain killers to deal with it. My back-pain completely eased out after 2 months of Tai Chi. It is not just a skill that you learn, but a way of life. I recommend it to every school child in India.

The repetitive slow movements mimic modern-day physiotherapy, but this ancient art form combines rehabilitation with strength, balance and grace. I never thought I would be able stand on my left leg, let alone kick with my right at the same time! But Tai Chi has enhanced my physical abilities, quietude, improved concentration and quicker reflexes and also made me a happier and more confident person. I’m glad to have learnt something so simple yet powerful that will keep me going even when I’m 70.
