Mayo Clinic says:Stress reduction & other benefits of tai chiLike other practices that bring mind and body together, tai chi can reduce stress. During tai chi, you focus on movement and breathing. This combination creates a state of relaxation and calm. Stress, anxiety and tension should melt away as you focus on the present, and the effects may last well after you stop your tai chi session.

Tai Chi Village Newsletter  Vol 5  – 2013

The Modernization of Tai Chi           Pam Kircher  Tai Chi Master Trainer, Colorado1.  Shortened simplified forms2.  Improved teaching methods3.  Scientific research…the real blossoming of tai chi in the West was due to three … factors… shortened simplified forms, improved teaching methods, and scientific research into the benefits of tai chi.

 

First, tai chi forms were shortened and simplified to be in harmony with the Western mind and lifestyle… longer forms often took years to learn… the Western mind was more suited to shorter forms that could be learned in months rather than years… shorter modified forms were also more suited to people with physical challenges….

A second factor in the modernization of tai chi is the utilization of what has been learned in the field of education about the most effective modes of teaching. …

A third factor in the modernization of tai chi is the … scientific research that looks not only at the impact of tai chi on various chronic conditions, but also the mechanisms by which tai chi actually works.  The 2013 book, The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi by Peter Wayne and Mark Fuerst includes information obtained from hundreds of research articles about the effects of tai chi….

———————————
  How do I keep up while I am absent?
 During the summer we have many things that can take us away from our classes.  Great!  We need the change.
 My advice on “keeping up with the class”    Take a deep breath.  Relax!  Exhale.  You are already catching up.
 We all learn at various rates.  Some practice more.  There’s no “keeping up.”  When we just practice what we know
  we progress.  We improve our balance, increase our energy and strength and feel better.
 A good teacher will look at where you are and give you more when you are ready.
 Practicing what you know is more important than learning something new.  All martial arts build on basic moves.
  Some believe Tai Chi has only 13 basic moves while others report 101.
 Do 5 Elements and concentrate on Breathing and keeping the movements fluid and all the same speed.
 Do 8 Brocades and concentrate on breathing.  Been researching 8 Brocades…there is much more there than
   we’ve explored in class.  Do each 12-35 times resting between each exercise before going on
  Also Relax when you change directions– going left and Right.  Being relaxed in your movements is the great secret of Tai Chi.
With these basics developed the rest will come easy.  Most of what is in the 24 postures is in the 5 & 8….just organized differently.
 That’s why we Learn/do the seemingly simple but easy to remember exercises first.
 You can learn and play and practice and not get lost.  You’ve 25 years to catch up to me and I’m still learning.
 Ah,  You can probably catch up in 10.  lol
.“Tai Chi is the most popular form of exercise on earth.
Millions who practice it are living longer more active lives”

Mayo Clinic Video  –  Research on the values of Tai Chi are being explored 
and explained by one of the nations most renowned medical education research centers.
 
Which is Better: Pilates or Tai Chi?  Tai chi and Pilates are both 
“gentle exercise forms that are beneficial to people of a wide range of ages and fitness levels.” 
The two disciplines are both similar and different.  The best is the one that fits your goals and fitness level.
