Taoist Tai Chi™ arts exercise the whole physiology, including the tendons, joints, connective tissue and internal organs. They are a method of "taming the heart" and developing an attitude of calm, compassion and reduced self-centredness, both during practice and in daily life.
Taoist Tai Chi™ arts are founded on a rich tradition of Taoist training. According to Taoist teachings, body and mind cannot be separated. Practising these arts helps the body return to a balanced, relaxed and healthy state and returns the mind to stillness, clarity and wisdom.
While there are many ways to participate in the training, most people begin with the physical practise of Tai Chi. This gentle set of movements promotes well-being for people of all ages and conditions.
Introductory classes are offered at our locations across New Zealand.
The founder of the International Taoist Tai Chi Society and Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism, Master Moy Lin Shin, devoted decades of his life to developing the Taoist arts and to making them accessible and beneficial to everyone, regardless of their physical condition.
The Taoist Tai Chi Society of New Zealand and the International Taoist Tai Chi Society promote the principle of all cultures and religions moving together in harmony. Individuals of all backgrounds and beliefs are welcome to participate in the practice and ceremonies that we offer.
