Pre-requisite: this special course is only open to those who have taken either Dr. Jay's "Moonlight" (fall) or "Starlight" (winter) courses, or both. This course reviews those choreographies, and combines them into the traditional 108-movement long form. The next opportunity to begin T’ai Chi study through OLLI will be this Fall Term 2017. T'ai Chi (Taijiquan or T’ai Chi Ch’üan), is a traditional Chinese moving meditation, martial art, and health exercise. It arose out of the belief that slow, continuous motion, combined with an internal focus on subtle changes, enhances energy, wellbeing, and mental, emotional, and physical balance. Scientific studies have verified many of its benefits, and medical professionals now endorse it for arthritis, Parkinsons, Fibromyalgia, balance difficulties, pulmonary and cardiovascular diseases, and a wide variety of other conditions. It is easy to practice, requires no special space or equipment, and integrates natural, easy movement with a joyful, reflective approach to daily life. Exercise or Dance.
