What is T’ai Chi?
T’ai-Chi (more properly called T’ai Chi Ch’uan or Taijiquan) is a system of moving meditation developed in China. When properly taught, it can have a profound benefit to your physical, mental and emotional health.
Why should I study T’ai-Chi?
T’ai Chi Ch’uan is a study in opposites. It’s both a way to strengthen the body and to study philosophy. It’s both a martial art and a meditation system. Since it trains so many things at once, it’s a great option for anyone who wants to cultivate themselves both mentally and physically but has limited time to devote to their studies. At its most fundamental level, the study of T’ai Chi Ch’uan teaches you to live your life with health, vitality, and longevity.
Who can benefit from T’ai-Chi?
We believe that T’ai-Chi is universally accessible and that everyone – young or old, weak or strong, male or female, health enthusiast or martial artist – can benefit from its practice and study. To make T’ai-Chi and related arts available to all, we offer a wide variety of courses and times, and we are devoted to providing the highest quality training for teachers, students, and practitioners.
