Tai Chi is an ancient art form that originates from China, that is best described as “meditation in motion.” It rejuvenates the body’s internal energy, achieving better blood circulation and reducing mental stress. Daily practitioners of Tai Chi observe many positive benefits including a better balance of body and mind, as well as reducing the affects of aging on flexibility and mobility.
Our classes teach Yang-style Tai Chi, which includes twenty-four postures, or short forms which are the most popular style world-wide, including China. The basics are easy to learn but still retain the basic essence of the art form. Each lesson consists of different warm-up routines that incorporate deep breathing and standing meditation. As part of the warm-up, a popular routine called Baduanjin qigong or “Eight Brocades” will be introduced. For a healthy life-style and longevity in retirement, incorporate Tai Chi as part of your daily exercise!
Master Richard Hsu studied and practiced Tai Chi for over thirty years under grand master Tsung Hwa Jou . He wishes to share his personal experiences of healthy and happy living with friends, demonstrating his belief in a sound mind dwelling in a strong body. Through Tai Chi, Master Hsu has learned that mental health is just as important as physical fitness, and his teachings help students accomplish both spiritual peace in mind as well as wellness in body, an all-critical balance between Ying and Yang.
