Tai Chi 

Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese martial art developed thousands of years ago in China. 

Tai Chi forms are a living collection of martial arts movements connected in a series. Each posture might be deciphered as several self-defense techniques. 

Today those forms are mostly taught to promote health and longevity due to their wide array of physical and mental benefits. 

Qigong (breath/energy work) is a series of individual movements designed to strengthen the body, focus the mind, and sharpen the spirit. Qigong exercises are usually grouped together in sets and are performed individually. 

One doesn't normally practice Tai Chi without also practicing Qigong. 

Tai Chi's slow gentle movements build stong core and legs, improve balance, lower blood pressure, improve beathing, prevent falls in seniors, and increase coordination. 

Because it is also a minfulness practice, it has proven to show benefits for anxiety, depression, ADHD, reduces stress, improves concentration, and more. 

Harvard Medical School calls Tai Chi "medication in motion" instead of meditation in motion due to its numerous health benefits. 

Before the Coronavirus shutdown, I taught classes at the following locations:

ARC of Evansville (resource center for handicapped persons),

Pinehaven Nursing Facility,

Evansville Protestant Home,

Fresh Air Church in Evansville

Trinity U. C. C. Church in Jasper. 

 

Jan of 2020, I was invited to the Chinese New Year Celebration to perform a Tai Chi demo. I was the only non-Chinese person on stage the entire night of festivities. It was a great honor.
