about tai chi
Tai Chi incorporates slow movements used as a form of relaxation and teaches control of every part of the body. The movements practiced are slow and steady and students focus on developing control and form as well as increasing muscle tone and improving flexibility. Fighting and self-defense techniques are included in the slow moving art. Students studying Tai Chi will improve their health and develop a sense of internal calm. Tai Chi teaches synchronization with the environment. Moving in concert with the dynamics of the cosmos. Following the movements of the universe. Looking for inner strength and outer softness. Using introspection. It’s the maximum expression of non-confrontation. It’s about opening the mind and breaking free of structure.
The study of Tai Chi also includes Chi Gong (Qigong or Chi Kung), which literally translates to “Life Energy Cultivation” or “Working with Life Energy.” Its practice involves slow, flowing movements coordinated with deep breathing. It is a moving meditation. Chi Gong helps the practitioner access higher awareness, awakens one’s true nature, and helps to develop one’s potential.
