Work-related burnout, everyday stress, pain, sleeplessness, and emotional overload are all standard issue symptoms for each of us these days. Tai Chi, Qigong, and meditation offer practitioners access to the most highly refined healing resources naturally occurring within our own bodies. Without a prescription, doctor, hospital, or drugstore, you will learn practical tools for mobilizing this remarkable inner resource.

About the Class

This 8-week beginner course in Yang Style 24 Tai Chi is led by Living Well Therapies founder Henderson Smith. Students will learn to maximize the “life-force energy,” or Qi (Chi), in a beautiful form of “moving meditation.” In a practice that Harvard refers to as “medication 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 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 them to cultivate wellbeing at home, at work, and at play for the rest of their life.

Each class will begin with meditation and Qigong to establish an aware, centered state from which to learn this ancient form of Tai Chi known as the Yang Style 24 Form. Students are encouraged to develop organically at their own pace, embrace their own unique considerations, and evolve in the capacity to better manage the thinking, feeling, and doing that influences every aspect of our lives. The movements are performed slowly with mindful intention on expressing your Qi through the body to improve your strength, balance, flexibility and range of motion.
