The Benefits of Tai Chi

The health benefits of a Tai Chi class go way beyond the toning and strengthening results you'll gain from many other fitness classes.

You'll get them too, plus a bumper crop of other wellness-boosting effects...

Tai Chi For Weight Loss

Though our Blackpool Tai Chi class won't work you up into a sweat, it will help you to tone the body and strengthen muscles. Done on it's own, Tai Chi isn't the best class for weight loss, though when coupled with a slick fat-burning cardio programme, it makes a great supplement to your weight loss plan.

Through our Tai Chi class in Blackpool, you'll develop increased muscle mass, improving your body's ability to burn fat. The increase in your metabolism will keep the body burning fuel for longer, aiding your weight loss goals. 

A more toned physique also helps the body to appear slimmer. 

Tai Chi Styles

There are five different styles of Tai Chi, all of which we use in our classes at Village Gym Blackpool. Find the style that works for you and adapt it for your own fitness levels. All styles of Tai Chi are about continuous movement from one pose to the next.

Yang style Tai Chi focuses on slow, graceful movements and upping your relaxation levels. A great class for beginners.

Wu style Tai Chi is all about micro-movements. You'll move slowly, making only slight movements at a time to strengthen key muscles and improve balance.

Chen style Tai Chi is a combination of slow moves with faster poses worked in. Think, punches, kicks and squats. 

Sun style Tai Chi is very similar to Chen style, though less challenging, great for older adults of Tai Chi newbies.

Hao style Tai Chi focusses more on posture, positioning the body and strength.

Tai Chi For Back Pain

If you're usually bent double or let out a cry when reaching, bending or twisting, our Tai Chi class in Blackpool can help.

Many members suffering from back aches and pains find that Tai Chi helps to lesson the symptoms.

It's low impact, with gentle stretching movements that will strengthen the back muscles without over-exertion. By improving your flexibility and aligning your spine, you'll relieve pressure on the back and neck, plus walk straighter too.  

Tai Chi For Older Adults

Thanks to the low impact nature of our Tai Chi class, it's no surprise that it's so popular with our older Blackpool members.

Easy on the joints, straight forward movements and unlikely to get you too out of breath,our more senior Blackpool members love a spot of Tai Chi followed by a cuppa tea afterwards!

Great for low back pain sufferers, members with osteoarthitis or weak joints. Plus regular Tai Chi will improve balance, reducing the risk of falling.
