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.

Bamboo Fusion

Enjoy the graceful, flowing and meditative movements of Yoga and Tai Chi.  Bamboo fusion is a work out blending the elements of water and wood. The water element will help you discover a deeper level of flow, giving you a delicious infusion of Chi energy. The wood element is expressed by the flexibility of hatha yoga poses. 

 

This workout will allow your body to soften and your tai chi movements will be more relaxed just like the bamboo trees waving in the wind. Growth in tai chi can’t be forced; you have to learn to let go.  Bamboo fusion is an experience in the principle of surrender. Surrendering to the stiffness of the body and the harshness of the mind.  Bamboo Fusion will help you extend and stretch your body and mind, like the bamboo tree reaching for the sky.

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.
