** More about Tai Chi & Qigong & the International Tai Chi Society

The International Tai Chi Society, Cape Town branch - brings you free tai chi and qigong in the Company's Garden this Sunday 7 Oct - 11h00-12h00).

Tai chi is a rich and intricate art that spans a history of thousands of years. Woven into the slow tai chi movements is an internal, soft martial art that contains the timeless wisdom of Chinese culture, their philosophies and healing systems.

The essence of tai chi is to learn to be in harmony with one’s surroundings and be at peace with oneself. With continuous tai chi practice it is an exercise that promotes the natural  development of the body; for the mind it is a study of quietness, willpower and concentration; and for the soul, a system of spiritual meditation.


The practise of qigong is an important component in Chinese martial arts. It is considered to be a source of power as well as the foundation of the internal style of martial arts. Qigong works by improving the practitioner’s immunity response, increasing a person’s self-healing and self-recovery capabilities and enhancing one’s self-regeneration potential. Qigong exercises combine breathing techniques,  simple body movements and mental imagery to engage concentration and relaxation.
