Traditional Taichi Singapore For Total Wellness

Taichi Singapore For Health & Total Wellness

“If qigong is the invisible bullets, then tai chi is the pistol.”

“Practising Tai Chi without Qigong foundation is akin to having a gun without its bullet loaded.”

At Nam Wah Pai, we practice and teach the Traditional Yang-Style Tai Chi 108 Movement Slow Form.


The Essence Of Traditional Tai Chi Lessons For Total Health & Wellness

Tai Chi, or Taiji Quan, is one of the best exercises in the world for all ages to achieve a healthy lifestyle. This ancient art dates back to ancient China over 2000 years ago and later spread to different parts of the world. However, many tai chi practitioners today practice the simplified forms of tai chi that focuses on beautiful moves, difficult (and at times dangerous) stunts to meet the scoring standards of competition purposes.

This is the major reason why many people get injured when they practice this kind of competitive tai chi. It’s because their body is not ready for such strenuous and explosive movements and yet they still push on until serious damage occurs to their bodies. These injuries range from muscle and ligament tear, slipped disc, dislocations and tendon injuries.

The Traditional Tai Chi is an internal martial art that promotes health through slow, smooth, relaxed yet continuous movement. People who are not physically active are prone to injuries if they suddenly start practicing tai chi without proper training. That’s why it is advisable for beginners to practice tai chi with the proper training and guidance from an experienced Tai Chi instructor.

As a Tai Chi beginner, one should only concentrate on learning the proper moves and posture, and to feel the inner energy flow circulating the body from these movements. By doing proper stretches and warming up before the class you are able to prevent muscle pull and sprain.

Tai chi is a very pleasurable activity for people of all ages who cannot do strenuous exercises due to health conditions. It’s also suitable for people with chronic injuries, limited mobility and pregnant women who are supposed to avoid strenuous exercises.

The Traditional Yang Style Tai Chi 108 Slow Form

When practicing any form of tai chi or internal martial arts, it is crucial to incorporate neigong or qigong (internal energy cultivation) for maximum health and wellness benefits. Practicing Tai chi without qigong foundation is akin to having a gun without its bullet loaded. At Nam Wah Pai, Our Tai Chi course focuses on a great emphasis on the application of internal energy with Qigong principles. This is drastically different from the modern or external form most instructors teach, which are lacking in the health boosting elements.

Traditional Yang Style Tai Chi 108 Slow form retains its core essence that was handed down by its founder- Yang Lu Chan. Practicing the traditional form ensures that you are adhering to the principles, methods, teachings handed down by the ancient masters.

Unlike other more extravagant techniques being taught in the industry, the traditional Yang style Tai Chi 108 form we practice uses a smaller stance. This helps our students achieve better balance, coordination and alignment, and lesser risk of joint related injuries from practicing the wider tai chi stances taught elsewhere.

The traditional yang style consists of three chapters, totalling up to 108 steps. Each and every form in the 108 movement has a powerful effect to hone your tai chi internal energy and power. At the same time, the gentle flowing and deliberate movements serve as a meditative technique to calm your mind and body.

Our bodies are filled with imbalances. Imbalances we cannot control through ordinary means, but with proper tai chi form and technique, we strive to correct this imbalance and bring harmony, enhance better circulation and energy flow within our body, and achieve the perfect Yin/Yang balance for total wellness.

The Nam Wah Pai combination of Tai Chi and Qigong has achieved amazing health results for our students and it is often described as “Meditation in Motion”.

    How often do you get trained by a Grandmaster himself?? Love that he is very willing to share his knowledge and is always very encouraging. Love the learning from him!
  • Avatar Christine Thamrin ★★★★ a month ago
    Qigong is definitely a good skill to learn for your wellness and overall health. Taichi has a higher learning curve but is a very relaxing exercise and also beneficial for self defense.
  • Avatar Poh Yin Hew ★★★★★ 4 months ago
    I attended my first qigong class at Nam Hwa Pei on 7 Feb 2022. My lesson starts at 8pm but I arrived early. The class was conducted on the open space roof top, and the beautiful view of the sunset took my breath away. From that day on, … More I would always look forward to seeing the sunset during my lessons.I had been battling insomnia for years, but after practicing qigong and Tai Chi for 4 months at Nam Hwa Pai, a magical thing happened to me - I no longer needed to take sleeping pills every night. My mind was calmer, and my body felt more relaxed. I am really grateful to Master Sim and his team of friendly instructors for their helpful and patient teaching. I highly recommend Nam Hwai Pai qigong and tai chi class for improving your health and wellness. Perhaps something magical could happen to you too?

    I'm glad that I joined this school. I initially wanted to do taichi alone, but was adviced to start from qigong - no regrets at all. All of the steps are clearly explained, backed by a good foundation of the Traditional Chinese Medicine, … More which definately underrated in this modern world. The Master and instructors are patients and very approachable. With continous qigong and taichi practise, I noticed that I regained more strength from within my body and my hormones regulating in good balance, with my menses became regular and normal. I'm thankful that I've found this school 😄
