WuDang Mountain 18 Form Tai Chi
Monday, May. 1, 2017 – Monday, May. 1, 2017
06:00 PM – 07:30 PM
This is a beginner course in WuDang Mountain 18 Form Tai Chi. In a practice that Harvard refers to as “meditation in motion”, this course will provide a basic introduction to the value of Tai Chi for its 21st century practical applications to reduce stress and improve your health. Delivered with a focus on movement, mindfulness and the power of breath, students will develop the foundation for a set of skills that will empower you to cultivate well-being at home, at work and at play for the rest of your life.
Tai Chi will train your mind to focus and direct the internal powerful energy of Qi. The movements are performed slowly with mindful intention on expressing this energy through the body to improve your strength, balance, flexibility and range of motion. The resulting influence is a scientifically effective therapy to strengthen the immune, digestive, circulatory, skeletal, neurology, and muscular systems of the body. Each class will end with a brief meditation, questions, and discussion of that day’s experience.
