We invite you to join with us in practising Tai Chi Chuan, with Mafalda Costa from the Folha de Bambu School. These lessons will enable you to develop a small sequence of 24 movements, which you may then continue to practise later.
Tai Chi Chuan is a Chinese martial art that belongs to the class of gentle styles or innermost arts. Its movements are developed at a slow pace that is its hallmark and distinguishes it from the other martial arts.
Besides its special rhythm, this discipline is characterised by circular movements that, by being continuously repeated, promote the circulation of Chi or energy, thus enabling the whole body to mobilise and project greater strength into the movement of attack or defence.
Tai Chi Chuan is considered to be a way of preventing physical problems and maintaining health, as it lowers blood pressure, reduces stress and anxiety, strengthens the muscles and joints, develops concentration, improves focus and stimulates the nervous and neurological system.
