Taoist Tai Chi, on the physical level, is a series of turning and stretching movements designed by a Taoist monk to exercise the entire body. On the emotional and spiritual level, it has been called “walking meditation” that reduces stress and increases a participant’s sense of calm. The Taoist Tai Chi Society is a nonprofit, volunteer organization dedicated to improving health and well-being by making Taoist Tai Chi available to all. Classes are beginning in September.
The movements of this 800-year-old “soft” form of martial arts consist of slow movements that use gentle turns and stretches. Participants have experienced improved balance, flexibility, circulation and strength. You do not need to be an athlete or, for that matter, coordinated or flexible to try a Tai Chi beginner class.
