The practice of Tai Chi originates from China, using rhythmic, slow and smooth body movements to relax the body and mind. While Tai Chi began as a martial art, today it is used throughout the world as a gentle form of exercise with far-reaching health benefits.
Three teachers are involved in the Tai Chi class. Gawain Siu is from Perth based Ging Mo Academy and has achieved medals in Australian and World Tai Chi Championships. Tony Salmon (who was once one of Gawain’s students and is now a Senior Instructor himself) and Jhung who is Gawain’s son who is also a Senior Instructor, all lead the class. The class is tailored to accommodate participants from beginner level to advanced, and everyone in-between. No prior Tai Chi experience is necessary and everyone works within their own limits. You are very welcome to use a chair for support for all or part of the class if you wish. The group always hold a morning tea afterwards and to many this is as fulfilling as the class itself.
