Taijiquan (also spelled “T’ai-chi Ch’üan” or simply “Tai Chi”) is a Chinese internal
style martial art and system of meditative movement used worldwide for fitness,
stress reduction, energy, well-being, as well as mental, emotional and physical balance.
Scientific studies have verified many of its benefits, and medical professionals
now endorse it for arthritis, recuperation from surgery, heart disease, balance
difficulties and a wide variety of other conditions.
It is easy to practice, requires no special space or equipment and fosters a joyful,
reflective approach to daily life. This class focuses on the Wu/Hao style—a subtle,
tranquil style, with high postures and small steps. It fosters “mind method”: internal
focus and awareness through concentration on opening and closing (kai-he).
Each class begins with quiet sitting, warm-ups, and various forms of qigong (energy enhancement).
