Thai Chi Instruction

The practice of Tai Chi is for both experienced and beginner students. There are specific forms for each purpose. Being a part of a group affords you the opportunity to watch and learn the strategies and habits of others. Your instructor will be teaching you the fundamental movements of the forms. After mastering each form, you will notice the purpose and will be taught the details of execution. When you are ready to advance, you will be taught the fuller form and will be given the necessary ling exercises to execute it properly.

Benefits of Tai Chi

This gentle form of exercise can help maintain strength, flexibility, and balance, and could be the perfect activity for the rest of your life.

Tai chi is often described as “meditation in motion,” but it might well be called “medication in motion.” There is growing evidence that this mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems. And 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 go without pausing through a series of motions named for animal actions for example, “white crane spreads its wings” or martial arts moves, such as “box both ears.” As you move, 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 in several respects. 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. (

An adjunct therapy is one that’s used together with primary medical treatments, either to address a disease itself or its primary symptoms, or, more generally, to improve a patient’s functioning and quality of life.
