Course Description

Taijiquan (t’ai chi ch’üan), a Chinese movement system, arose out of 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. We practice energy-enhancing exercises and a sequence of movements from the traditional Wu/Hao long form, set to Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata," to serve as the basis of a regular personal routine. Lecture (plus Questions) Exercise or Dance Active Participation Listening to Music or Other Audio
