Tai Chi Norfolk UK

Tai Chi is an exercise activity, that when practiced daily, has many health and wellbeing benefits. ​Although Tai Chi has its origins as a martial art, it is now most popular purely for the health, fitness and wellbeing benefits. It began as a cultural activity in China and spread throughout the world. It consists of dynamic, fluid, relaxed, graceful movements and postures.
