Tai Chi is a gentle form of exercise that can prevent or ease many ills of aging and could be the perfect activity for the rest of your life.    (Havard Medical School)

Tai chi is often described as “meditation in motion,” but it might well be called “medication in motion.”  This mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems.

You can get started even if you aren’t in top shape or the best of health.

In this low-impact, slow-motion exercise,  you breathe deeply and naturally, focusing your attention — as in some kinds of meditation — on your bodily sensations. Tai chi differs from other types of exercise. The movements are usually circular and never forced, the muscles are relaxed rather than tensed, the joints are not fully extended or bent, and connective tissues are not stretched.

Tai chi can be easily adapted for anyone, from the most fit to people confined to wheelchairs or recovering from surgery.

Tai Chi Classes are designed for Adults but all ages are welcome.

 Tai Chi is a fun exercise for parents and grandparents to do with the children.

What is Tai Chi

Tai Chi is a system of exercises/movements that promote health, longevity and self defense.  Tai Chi consists of  gentle flowing movements based on an ancient Chinese martial art.   Millions around the world  practice Tai Chi  for its health benefits that soothe the mind and strengthen the body.   Many practice Tai Chi as a means of dealing with tension and stress.  People of any age can practice Tai Chi.  It is a system for self-development both physically and mentally.

Tai chi emphasizes complete relaxation and meditation and has been described as “meditation in motion.”

Tai chi exercises combine balance, coordination and breathing with harmonious soft, slow flowing movements that  renew and invigorate the body, mind and spirit. The smooth movements massage the organs, improve blood circulation and promote diaphragmatic breathing.

Tai Chi’s continuously moving postures are often described as “poetry in motion” which loosen and gradually strengthen the muscles, tendons and joints.

When practiced correctly Tai Chi movements work to calm and focus the mind, so that mind, energy and body work in harmony.  One “flows with the river.”   Our lives are filled with timetables and deadlines we must force ourselves to complete.  Tai Chi helps us follow natural body and mind rhythms–“flow like water.” Tai chi exercise can work toward the release of tension, anger and other pent-up emotions.
