WHAT IS TAI CHI EASY? Tai Chi Easy™ is a carefully developed method and approach to Tai Chi and Qi (Chi) Cultivation that makes it easy, beneficial and fun from the very beginning.The student does not have to devote years to learning the traditional 108 movement form or even the shortened (24, 36, 42 movement) form to enjoy the calming emotional and health benefit of Tai Chi (Taiji).
Tai Chi Easy™ is not "just" an exercise program that uses gentle activities to increase joint flexibility, circulation, range of motion and to maintain muscle strength. As a practice that Harvard calls "meditation in motion," the slow movements and mindset of Tai Chi can be used to manage stress levels by creating a heightened sense of self awareness, mindfulness, empowerment and choice. The mind-body practices of Tai Chi Easy™ soothe and rewire the nervous system and increase cognitive and brain plasticity. Research is confirming that Tai Chi and Qigong, Chinese wellness practices for Mind-Body health, prevent and heal disease and relieve pain.
May we be at peace. May our hearts remain open. May we awaken to the light of our own true nature. May we be healed and may we be the source of healing to ourselves, each other and our planet and all living beings.
