What is the ‘Lee Style’ of  Tai Chi?

The ‘Lee Style’ form of Tai Chi is commonly known as the Yin & Yang style and also as ‘the family style’ due to its gentle, flowing movements as everything in it is in complete harmony and in perfect balance. Sometimes it is referred to as meditation in motion.

It is the oldest form of Tai Chi in existence and the most popular style in the world. It was originally created by Ho-Hsieh around 1000BC, making this style almost 3000 years old., due to its gentle, rhythmic and flowing movements.  It is low impact and suitable for all body types, levels of fitness, mobility and age groups. In China today, Tai Chi is taught in schools as both a mental and physical discipline and to help children stay calm throughout the school day and develop good habits for life as can be testified by the thousands of adults and elderly people seen performing Tai Chi in parks, car parks; in fact, any open space throughout China.


Why has Tai Chi lasted so long?  Because it is very effective and it works!
