What is Tai Chi
Tai Chi, or Tai Chi Chuan (taiji quan) to give it its proper name, is a combination of:-
- The Principles of Yin and Yang
- Traditional Chinese Medicine
- Breathing techniques also known as "Qigong"
- Martial Arts Movements
Wild Goose Qigong in Bury
If you are looking for Qigong in north Manchester, the British Chen Style Tai Chi College also has classes in Wild Goose Qigong. Wild Goose Qigong maintains health by moving the body through a dance-like sequence of movements, similar to Tai Chi. However it has a much deeper effect in opening the acu-points, moving the Qi through the meridians and flushing out any negative energy which may cause stagnation and illness! This is a self-healing, self-nurturing exercise system.
Our teaching is directly from Grandmaster Chen Chuangang, the 28th generation lineage holder, of this system which started almost 2000 years ago.
Our classes are open to both beginners and to those who wish to learn the accurate, authentic version of this form that was handed down to Yang Meijun from her Grandfather Yang De Shan.
