Tai Chi Chuan is a type of martial arts that is very gentle in practice. It involves a combination of breathing deeply from the
diaphragm and dancelike poses that flow easily from one pose to another. Despite being slow and gentle, it provides a decidedly strenuous workout for people of many age groups. There have been recent studies that have shown that practicing Tai Chi can improve balance, strength in legs, pulse rate, cardiovascular endurance, immune system, cardiovascular endurance, muscular flexibility, sleep patterns, focus and concentration, ability to multitask in cognitive tests and, enhance self-esteem and overall happiness.
These traditions might be thousands of years old, but every now and then too much snow just gets in the way. We're suspending Yoga, Meditation, Tai-Chi classes for Tuesday January 27th, and possibly Wednesday 28th due to Juno.
But here's a snow man doing a headstand it mastered in our very own classes! Hopefully it inspires you to practice at home while the studio is closed! Keep those muscles relaxed and flexible!
Hope everyone stays safe and can join us soon for our regularly schedule classes.
