MDA Naas

We believe that Tai Chi is for everyone regardless of age or physical fitness, to paraphrase Master Ding, Tai Chi is unlimited for mind, body and spirit.
Our club is friendly, relaxed and welcoming. Club members are interested in different aspects of Tai Chi and have different motivations and ambitions: some are interested in the health benefits, some in the moving meditation, others do Tai Chi to help with rehab of an injury or they may be interested in the martial applications of the form. Everyone’s Tai Chi journey is different but we can all work together to help each other on their way.
