Tai Chi

No Tai Chi July 19th

It started as an ancient Chinese martial arts form used to ward off attackers, and has evolved into a graceful form of slow-motion exercise that combines circular movements and deep breathing to relax the muscles and develop the body's strength, flexibility and fluidity. Because you go through a series of motions without pausing, it is often described as “meditation in motion”.

Studies conducted by the Harvard Medical School have shown that, when combined with other standard treatments, Tai Chi has been effective in battling many ailments including: Arthritis, Hypertension, Breast Cancer, Heart Disease, Sleep Problems, and Parkinson’s Disease.

Charles Shepard, our Tai Chi Instructor, boasts an impressive resume. He is entering his 5th decade in martial arts, and has earned 5 black belts, and a 2nd degree Black Sash in the internal arts. He is a 2013 Inductee into the Masters Hall of Fame. Charles believes that with practice, a Tai Chi student will learn to swim through air as a fish darts through water, move as light as a feather to escape, and grow as heavy as a mountain when grabbed.
