Tai Chi is offered every Monday at 8:50 AM – 9:50 Tai Chi is a Chinese martial art made up of a series of graceful movements, one transitioning smoothly into the next. I found an article by Dr. Komaroff sometime ago. He wrote about one of his Medical School colleagues Dr. Peter Wayne. Dr Wayne discusses “Eight Active Ingredients” of Tai Chi. Some of which were; “Awareness” The slow deliberate movements and attention to breath, body positions and sensations foster intense self-awareness. “Intention, Imagery and Visualization” contribute to the healing and physiological effects of tai chi. “Structural integration”, Viewing the body as a whole, instead of a collection of independent parts. “Active Relaxation” Tai Chi’s circular, flowing motion helps shift the body and mind into deeper levels of relaxation. “Strengthening and Flexibility” The integrated movements improve balance, increase lower body strength and promotes strong bones. Slow, continuous, relaxed and repetitive movement enhances flexibility. And in contrast to some other exercises, tai chi is very easy on you joints. Our class is taught by Dan Roatcap.
