T’ai Chi Chuan is a moving meditation that sets into motion the internal energy traveling through the body known as “Chi.” As a healing element this flow of “Chi” energy increases circulation, calms the mind, relaxes the muscles and heals nervous, organic and skeletal problems. This class introduces & drills the basic alignment, postures/ movement combinations of the Yang style “37 abstract-form” (based on the 108 long-form). We will practice breathing & moving meditation techniques to promote the flow of “Chi” energy through the body, plus partner exercises known as “push hands” (Tui Shou) to develop a deeper awareness summarized by the words “relax” & “sink.”
Appropriate for all levels of experience.
