Tai Chi focuses on the cultivation of inner awareness and energy. The general objective is to provide you mental and physical balance, essential for well-being.
Tai Chi will help you develop effortless power and flexibility through relaxation, control and precision of movement. Relaxation is central to the practice of Tai Chi. Straining or pain are to be avoided.
By learning internal control and focus you make external movements flow effortlessly from one to another.
The practice of Tai Chi is designed to strengthen the central nervous system and internal organs as well as the muscles and joints. The practice requires concentration and inner stillness and trains mind as well as body.
With regular practice Tai Chi increases flexibility and improves balance and coordination. This has been substantiated by a study conducted at the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Ga. Current research by various institutions summarizes some the benefits of the practice of Tai Chi. Among the benefits listed are:
1. Improved function of both heart and lungs.
2. Improved immune response.
3. Improved balance among Parkinson disease patients.
4. Improved mood states.
My approach to Tai Chi is to blend the study of the Short Yang form with the Feldenkrais Method and Alexander Technique. In practical terms this means that you learn to apply Tai Chi principles to your specific needs.
My step by step approach will allow you learn at your own pace and you will experience results in a short time. For more information you can contact me at: 507-6678-3297 or write to: firstname.lastname@example.org
