Chen Style Tai Chi: Pounding the mortar
Tai Chi Chuan, the great ultimate, strengthens the weak, raises the sick, invigorates the debilitated, and encourages the mind. “Cheng Man Ching”
Although Tai Chi was originally practiced as a martial art, and still can be, it has also developed as a holistic form of exercise and meditation, and this is how we are teaching it at Project Dao. Coordinating slow rhythmic movements based on Chinese martial art forms with relaxed deep breathing leads to a calmness that has many health benefits both physical and psychological. Regular practice will lead to improvements in balance; flexibility; aerobic fitness; muscular strength & endurance; joint integrity; and ability to deal with chronic pain. Perhaps more important than the gains are the losses. You will lose intolerance; anxiety; resentment; low self-esteem; aggression; and anger. In short, you will become a calmer, happier, better, healthier person. Tai Chi is sometimes referred to as moving meditation. Its benefits are so varied and plentiful it could be referred to as moving medication.
