LFA Tai Chi Health Arts
Tai Chi and the LFA. Sheila Dickinson, is the Master Instructor and President of the LFA Health Arts.
There are many styles of tai chi available to learn today, however, the style which we teach is the Lee Family Arts.
The Lee style of tai chi is commonly known as the ‘yin and yang’ tai chi style as everything in it is in complete balance and harmony.
The form we teach is purely a health art, based on the principles of Chinese medicine and it has been in existence for over three thousand years find out about the Lee style.
Tai Chi and chinese medicine work by using your body’s natural energy
Every living person has energy inside their body; it’s with us from the day we are born until the day we die.
A person with highly developed energy experiences very few illnesses, and this is what we are working towards. People who practice our form of Tai Chi find their energy and health improve very quickly.
We all understand how our blood flows around our body and how most of our organs function. Energy ensures that our blood flows freely so that our organs are nourished, and our tissues, muscles and bones are healthy.

Everyone who practises the T’ai Chi Dance experiences the feel good factor. If your get up and go has got up and gone then the movements of our T’ai Chi Dance are for you.
I personally practise our T’ai Chi Dance movements every morning; they give my energy levels a boost that lasts me throughout the whole of the day.
However I strongly advise against practising the T’ai Chi Dance movements in the late evening or you will find yourself buzzing and unable to sleep.
The T’ai Chi Dance also helps to improve your balance and co-ordination, while at the same working the memory.

Tai Chi Silk Set
The T’ai Chi Silk teaches each of us the power of gentleness within gentle flowing circles.
However, though extremely gentle and elegant, the motions supply us with a cardiovascular exercise, at the same time as enhancing the slow activities of our T’ai Chi Form.
