Tai Chi by PYP2

Our third unit of inquiry is all about healthy lifestyle. We are learning about different segments which contribute our physical, emotional and psychological balance. Therefore, we are relaxing, stretching, doing breathing exercising, and many other activities every day. Tai Chi is one of them!

What is Tai Chi?
Tai chi is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits. Tai Chi works on the inside of the body and helps us feel peaceful and focused. We begin to understand our needs and emotions, and it becomes easier to find self-control.

Schools in China and around the world do Tai Chi to start the school day. The focus, calmness, concentration and ability to work grow. This is why we want to learn and practice Tai Chi.

Tai Chi is a great school activity; Tai Chi reminds us to breathe, stand straight, relax, visualize, focus, and release stress. It enhances creativity, too. It can be done in a few minutes, here and there, throughout the day.

This morning, we did a Tai chi session in order to bring us back to attention with calmness and enthusiasm.
