Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese defensive martial art that teaches healthy movements to balance the body and mind. In class, participants will learn to focus their mind in slow, gentle movements, which can promote well-being over time. Tai chi has been shown to decrease stress and improve balance and coordination.
Tai Chi uses meditation to improve calmness and clarity and requires a mature level of concentration in order to achieve the full benefit of the class. Participants will learn proper body alignment, joint mechanics, and the relationships between the muscles in the body.
This class also includes instruction in Chi Gong as a warmup technique, proper breathing, Tai Chi walks and form, joint mechanics and manipulation, martial arts application, meditation, and Tai Chi philosophy.
Instructor Evan Foster has studied Tai Chi for 15 years and eared his certification after 10 years. He was taught Chang Man Chang and Yang style and studied Wudang Taji Quan with Master Xia` Chongyi for 7 years.
Evan also travelled to Wudang, China in October 2012 to train under Master Xuan Yun Zhou and is a member of Wudang Swordsmen Academy.
