About Tai Chi

Throughout five thousand years of history, the rich cultural heritage of China has flowed like a mighty river winding in and beyond successive dynasties. Central to Chinese culture is a view of the universe that begins with a concept of nothingness, a state of emptiness or void, which the Chinese call Wuji. Creation in this tradition is believed to have evolved over time, with the final or highest state being Tai Chi, the state of completeness. As ancient inhabitants sought to understand and relate to their universe, Tai Chi Quan developed by crystallizing the spiritual treasures of humanity. In Tai Chi, harmony and happiness for the individual can be achieved by tuning your life and lifestyle to those principles, which are revealed and experienced as you practice Tai Chi. As you study Tai Chi, you will come to appreciate its unique life efficiency.

Though some have taken on Tai Chi simply to learn its disciplines for maintaining health and acquiring defensive techniques, more and more people are being attracted to Tai Chi for the beauty and sheer enjoyment it brings, in giving a feeling of confidence and contentment. There are five styles of Tai Chi: Chen, Yang, Sun, Wu吴, and Wu武. Each of these styles involves a different type of physical movement. Chen, the oldest style is marked by spiral silk-winding fluidity, accented by standing meditation. These movements are used to ignite and stimulate the body’s energy. Chen combines hard and soft, fast and slow, relaxing and springing motions. As you practice Chen and the other styles, you will feel real energy electrifying your body, springing from the dan tian. This pulsation moves through all the meridians and beyond, melding into the universe and connecting with nature. Thus, the use of mind, energy and movement join together to form a natural, and beautiful art.

Tai Chi has many different styles and many different forms. Even in the same style and with different grandmasters, each one has a special technique, but the deepest roots of the theories are the same. There is a common underlying thread.

Tai Chi is a traditional Chinese martial art form, which combines Dao Yin 导引(energy transfer), Tu Na吐纳 (breathing technique), and Yin-Yang Wu Xing theory阴阳五行 (Yin-Yang theory and the five elements: Metal “金”\ Wood “木”\ Water“水”\ Fire“火”\ Earth“土”) to create a graceful and beautiful spiritual art for health and wellness.

Tai Chi is a complete health and wellness training system that utilizes flowing movements to improve your circulation, strength, balance, and reduces stress. This class is a wonderful opportunity to experience the Ancient Chinese Yin Yang philosophy and Traditional Energy training. You will learn the 5 Internal Energy Training Methods.
