Tai Chi is a sequence of postures connected by flowing movement, practiced with focused breathing and a calm mind—a type of moving meditation. Practicing Tai Chi regularly can reduce stress, increase energy, balance, and flexibility, and ease symptoms of many health problems such as high blood pressure, asthma, back pain, and arthritis.

Tai Chi Ball is a Qigong training that is an invaluable part of Tai Chi practice as it builds the softness and strength of the body structure following the roundness of the ball. This training can also strengthen the torso, condition the muscles, and increase physical power.

  • Tai Chi Sword is practiced to achieve higher and more profound levels of Qi.
  • In fact, the theory of Tai Chi Sword is much deeper than that of barehand Taijiquan.

  • The Tai Chi Sword Qigong set will be trained in this class as a preparation for the Tai Chi Sword Sequence in future classes.
  • Students will be introduced to the classical Yang Style Tai Chi Sword (楊氏太極劍, yángshì tàijíjiàn) form, which consists of 54 movements.
