About Tai Chi
The ancient Chinese martial art of Tai Chi has not only self-defense
qualities but also numerous day-to-day mind, body, and spirit benefits
that can help people of all ages. Whether the focus is school, work,
or play, Tai Chi offers you the opportunity for daily balance and
coordination, managing stress, gaining the upper hand in tough
situations, or simply slowing down life's hectic schedule.
All classes include relaxation
and breathing techniques as well as Chi Kung exercises, which
cultivate and enhance your inner energy. Our Tai Chi Chuan classes
include activities and exercises for all age ranges from seniors to
teenagers, for all skill levels from students to athletes. The
practice of Tai Chi has a long list of documented health benefits
including stress management, fall prevention and decrease in blood
pressure. Tai Chi has been recommended for the treatment of
arthritis, osteoporosis, anxiety, ADD, ADHD, fibromyalgia, chronic
pain, circulation and nervous system disorders, CFS, and OCD, to name
"Tai Chi has helped me get through surgeries, chemotherapies, and
radiation. It gave me something to focus on while taking pet scans and
other medical procedures. It strengthened my breathing and helped
relieve much of the anxiety, and now I am off of blood pressure meds.
While it does not cure cancer, Tai Chi makes fighting cancer a lot
easier." Susan Fischer, 10 year student
Seniors, even in their 90s, get great benefits from Tai Chi.
For thousands of years cultures around the world have used the benefits
of meditation for better mental, physical, and emotional health.
The peaceful, quiet, and deep insights of meditation complement
the calmness and relaxation of Tai Chi movements and thoughts. One's
ability to focus on personal topics is greatly enhanced. Concentration,
energy, and creativity are improved. Meditation helps to combat the
stress of today's challenges and clears active, cluttered minds.
Improve your overall well being through meditation techniques and methods.
"We live in a hectic world and our minds are often filled with hundreds of thoughts.
Tai Chi helps me clear my mind and learn to focus. It also helps me physically with
its gentle movements to stay flexible which hopefully, will protect me from future
injuries." Mark Oda, 5 month student
