Tai Chi Flow

 

Imagine... moving to the rhythm of modern music, a group gliding and moving together, while body, mind and breath come together as One.   In this moving meditation, there is no routine or choreography to memorize.  Nothing to “get right.”  With a focus on breath and honoring your body’s movements, you will experience the wonderful state of FLOW.  We will move for approximately 45 minutes with some reflection and meditation at the beginning and end of our time together. 

 

In our time together we will combine elements of balance, meditation, Qigong and traditional Tai Chi.  This class is an all inclusive class and everyone is welcome!  All you have to is open your mind, your breath and your heart.   Wear comfortable clothes and clear enough space to extend your arms in all directions.

Tai Chi for Health

 

Each Tai Chi for Health class involves QiGong, warm-up exercises, instruction on form, putting tai chi principles into action and cool-down exercises.  These classes can be done seated or standing.    The essential principles include mind integrated with the body; control of movements and breathing; generating internal energy, mindfulness, song (loosening 松) and jing (serenity 静). The ultimate purpose of tai chi is cultivating the qi or life energy within us to flow smoothly and powerfully throughout the body. Total harmony of the inner and outer self comes from the integration of mind and body, empowered through healthy qi through the practice of tai chi.  Juli is a certified Tai Chi for Health in both Rehabilitation and Arthritis & Fall Prevention.

Tai Chi 8 Form (Yang Style)

The 8 form was created as a simplified version of and stepping stone to learning the longer 24 form.  Both forms are part of the Yang style of Tai Chi. The 8 form reduces the number of movements to learn allowing you time to develop a natural flow of movement.  You can do practice at home alone, or with a group.   As with all Awaken Tai Chi, 8 form and can be modified to meet your needs and abilities. This form is excellent beginners and seniors.
