TAI CHI CHUAN
Tai Chi Chuan means "Grand Ultimate Boxing" & refers to the Yin/Yang pair of opposites describing the flow of vital energy. Celebrated for its health benefits, the practice of tai chi chuan promotes improved blood circulation, reduced stress, strengthened bones & connective tissue, improved balance & a more developed self awareness. The study of Tai Chi Chuan pursues body alignment, harmonious natural movement, serenity of mind & the balance of Yin & Yang. In doing so, the practitioner returns to the original state of balance known as Wu Ji.
We offer Tai Chi Chuan classes to share the physical & mental benefits; cultivating adaptability & serenity are practical skills for hectic modern life. Our class emphasizes development of posture, breath, flexibility & self-awareness without strain. It is a highly effective form of self defense for those interested in its origins as a martial art.
