Give Tai Chi a Try

Our tai chi instructor, Mary Newbill, wanted to share a brief introduction of her course and encourage those curious to come by and give it a try.

This is a Yang Style Short Form “beginner” and a “continuing class” in the tradition of  Chen, Man-Ch’ing’s  “Soft Style” Style Tai Chi.  There is a “beginning class” that will begin anew each month and “continuing class” that will  keep moving ahead with the short form. If you are a novice at Tai Chi taking the beginning class at least two times is a good idea.

We will do Chi Kung (Qi Gong) as warm ups and learn the moves in context of understanding  applications to help students make more sense of the specific movement. This class is suitable for all levels of fitness and is based on relaxed, gentle, movement that allows the body to open meridian flows, thereby loosening the joints and muscles and supporting  internal organ health.

In China doctors often prescribe Tai Chi for people as they age or to support healing of an illness or injury.  Recently more and more current western medical research prove the benefits of this ancient system of movement for problems including:  decreased balance and flexibility, hypertension, arthritis, heart disease,  heart failure,  Parkinson’s,  sleep problems, not to mention preventing falls and increased muscle strength.
