In-Person Beginner Taichi - Yang Style 26 Routine
Yang Style Taichi is the one of most popular Taichi Style in the world. The slow, relaxed, condensing and expanding movements of taijiquan provide a total body exercise. As the muscles are allowed to relax, blood circulation can be improved. The gentle movements loosen up the spine, ribs and the internal organs. By “massaging” the organs, you can loosen up the tension around them and increase the blood circulation. The slow movements allow the body to move with less tension than high pace movements, which require fast muscle contractions. The slow movements of taijiquan allow the lungs to be more relaxed and to increase the intake of oxygen.
Taijiquan exercise helps to redistribute your qi (energy) in your body, by leading excess energy from tense areas, so as to regain balance. Performing taijiquan early in the morning clears the mind and prepares you to tackle any task during the day. Qi is the intrinsic substance or the “vital force” within all things in the universe.
The Yang Style Taichi 26 form takes only four minutes to practice, but offers benefits for your entire life.
This class is scheduled to start on April 17th to October 23th, 2023, Monday at 6:30-7:30pm

The entire form of Wuji depicts a vivid story that embodies profound Taoist and Buddhist philosophies; it is about how we cultivate our ‘original spirit’ following the course of the cosmos and harmonizing with the myriad of changes of the universe. The physical movements and training express the ancient Taoist physical form and its many applications as well as having an in depth understanding of the theories and philosophies of this art.
