About Tai Chi

Tai chi is a Chinese martial art that employs slow intentional movements, coordinated with breathing and imagery, to strengthen and relax the physical body and mind. It enhances and balances the flow of internal energy (qi), resulting in improved health, personal development, and self-defense.

Not just for the fit and able-bodied, tai chi is also famous for its healing applications. Medical research suggests tai chi may have therapeutic benefits for:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Balance disorders
  • Low bone density
  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Stress
  • Attention deficit disorders
  • Sleep disorders
  • Depression

The class introduces students to Cheng Man-Ching’s 37-Movement Short Form, one of the most popular tai chi forms in the West. Emphasis is placed on proper structural alignment, relaxed and mindful movement, and efficient breathing.

Did You Know?

Qigong is based on the Traditional Chinese Medicine concept that all of the body's systems should be in harmony with each other and with the outside world. This harmony is built upon a “base operating system” of healthy qi flow throughout the body. Treatment therefore tends to take the whole system into account, and not just localized areas.
