Introduction to Tai Chi

with Brendan Jenks

Saturday November 18th ~ 12-3pm 

Taiji (or Tai Chi) is a wellness practice and martial art which evolved from ancient Chinese techniques for health enhancement. The slowly performed, gentle movements of taiji training make it suitable for all ages and fitness levels. Although ancient in origin, the effectiveness of these meditative motions has been documented by contemporary medical research: taiji improves balance, coordination, and range of motion, stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, and significantly enhances feelings of mental and emotional well-being. And, best of all, taiji practice requires a minimal amount of space and no special equipment, so once you understand the method you can access its benefits anytime and anywhere!

In this introductory workshop, we will explore the taiji concept “sung” often translated as “relax”. Taiji’s method of loosening and relaxing the body will be introduced through simple exercises. Breath work will be incorporated in a meditation to help connect the relaxation of the body with the calming of the mind. Students will learn the taiji posture sequence often referred to as “Grasp the Sparrow’s Tail” and the basic mechanics of taiji movement. The material will be targeted at beginners, but those with taiji experience may find the workshop a useful way to refresh the foundations of their practice.

Cost is $35 with a discount of 10% for Members of Blue Soul.  

Please bring a yoga mat and wear comfortable clothing that you can move freely in.
