Tai Chi for EnergyEnergising people of all ages

This exciting program consists of two different tai chi styles which create an uniquely powerful synergy.

Chen style is vigorous and sophisticated, containing fast and slow movements along with powerful spiral force. Sun style includes a unique qigong (life energy) along with agile steps. These two seemingly contrasting styles have complementary internal energy. Using his deep understanding of tai chi principles and with over 40 years of experience, Dr  Lam composed the Tai Chi for Energy set by combining both styles to bring you greater synergy.

With regular practice and in a relatively short period of time, you will achieve better health and wellness, more internal energy, and an improved ability to manage stress. 

The program contains warm up and cool down exercises and 16 movements.
