YANG  STYLE  TAI  CHI  AUCKLAND NZ

Traditional and contemporary Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan plus Health Qigong

Teaching since 1994

There is much information on Tai Chi (Taiji) and Qigong now available on the internet and the different styles, each with their many variations, often causes confusion. To assist with home practice, the following links provide direct access to resources which are relevant to our class practice and studies:

Tai Chi Medical Research Library at www,worldtaichiday.org. The most popular resource of its kind as used by health, government and educational institutions worldwide. Look up nearly 100 common health issues to find reports and medical research showing how Tai Chi and Qigong may help those conditions.

Taiji Qigong Shibashi (18 Forms Tai Chi Qigong) Set 1 at www,taichi18.com. Follow the routine with Master Wing Cheung at www.youtube.com/watch?v=lHD-F_pzYlc. One of the easiest to learn Qigong set, it incorporates some of the best movements of Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan and hence provides a good introduction to Tai Chi. All our new beginner students commence with learning this routine which later becomes a part of their warm-up regimen for Tai Chi Chuan.
