The Essex Tai Chi Academy is a not-for-profit organisation operated by volunteer instructors. We are dedicated to teaching the techniques and benefits of Tai Chi as originally taught by Master Moy Lin-Shin (1931-1998).
Adapted from martial arts, Tai Chi is gentle exercise that allows you to stretch your muscles, tendons, and ligaments in a natural way, creating a feeling of relaxation and providing real health benefits.
We welcome young and old alike and have become known for our relaxed and friendly approach to teaching. We also offer our services to partners in traditional health and social care agencies.
The Academy is concerned only with Tai Chi and is not affiliated with any religious groups.

Physically tai chi helps me keep supple. Mentally it is very important to aid powers of concentration. – Joe
After having a heart attack 30 years ago, I was advised to take up tai chi by the specialist. At 80 years of age I still do it and am very thankful for it. – Clive
Tai chi is such a crucial part of my life that I only chose to move once I had established there were local classes. For me tai chi represents companionship, mobility and mental peacefulness. – Anon
