May 5-June 23
1hr = $15, 4hrs = $50, 8hrs = $80.
The Art of Tai Chi is based on the natural harmony of our body/mind/spirit. Many forms have been created for the gradual development of flexibility and strength, balance and endurance, concentration and peace of mind. Originating in China, Tai Chi is now practiced around the world. Current research confirms the traditional health benefits.
2013 is a Chinese year of “the water snake”, which symbolizes transformation through the element of water. Tai Chi is a wonderful way to experience it! With each gesture, we release stress and free ourselves, like the snake shedding its old skin. With each stroke we grow stronger and more flexible, like the snake swimming through an ocean of energy.
Our spines have a snake-like shape. Our bodies were designed to move fluidly. We are about 80% water. Our muscles and tendons wrap around our skeleton to enable smooth motion. Consider the rhythm of the breath, the internal massage by the diaphragm. Enjoy the rhythm of the heart, pulsing through the rivers and streams of our circulation! Observe the clearing and calming of the mind, as we focus on our natural flowing movement. Come experience the art of Tai Chi!
