Learning about Tai chi chuan
Mary Lynne and I took a summer course to learn about Tai chi chuan at our local YMCA with instructor Pat Russell.
Want to find your Chi?!
In this six week session, we will briefly discuss the history of the exercise as we learn a fitness-approach to the age-old Yang Short Form. The Yang Short Form is a link of 24 unchanging Tai Chi movements that have been passed down through centuries of tradition.
Tai Chi is one of the oldest forms of exercise on the planet. In fact, some written traditions of Tai Chi date back to over 8,000 years ago.
Special attire is not required.
Wear loose fitting, comfortable clothes.
You will learn to feel invigorated, energized, and balanced from this natural, choreographed flow of wellness.
The exercises are done standing, but they can be readily adapted for any participant wishing to sit.
