Taijiquan (t’ai chi ch’uan), a Chinese movement system, arose from the belief that slow, continuous motion combined with an internal focus on subtle changes enhances energy, well-being, and mental, emotional, and physical balance. Scientific studies have verified many of its benefits, and medical professionals now endorse it for arthritis, Parkinson's disease, 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 exercise with a joyful, reflective approach to daily life. In this Zoom class, we will practice energy-enhancing exercises (qigong) as well as a sequence of movements from the traditional Wu/Hao style taijiquan long form to serve as the basis of a regular personal routine. Student of all levels are welcome, from novices to those with experience. | Active participation.
