After a long, hard day’s work, most people are too exhausted to hit the gym or go for a run.
Tai Chi is considered a low-impact form of training that’s appropriate for almost anyone. Tai Chi is also the only low-impact exercise that has a proven history for reversing the aging process. Not even yoga can compare.
Each movement in Tai Chi helps the practitioner gain awareness of how to release tension, while exercising within a comfortable range of motion. You will quickly discover how much calmer and more at peace you feel after every class.
The Chinese have found something that flows through the human body and it is called "chi." In English it roughly translates as "vital energy" or "energy force."
This chi flows through a certain path throughout the body that is referred to as meridians. Regular practice of Tai Chi moves will help open up these meridians so that chi can flow freely throughout the body. Therefore, the first benefit someone will feel from regular attendance of their Tai Chi classes is an increase in energy or life force.
I have been doing martial arts for almost 40 years and belonged to numerous clubs and schools. I can say that this is a quality school for the following reasons: The student turn over is low (I.e. students tend to stay rather than leave). There are no contracts. All classes are taught by a master. Most of all it is evident that the instructors truly love the art and enjoy sharing their knowledge with the students
I joined to have something to do other than "go to work and come home". I wanted a program to help with flexibility, concentration, and relaxation....one that would become a life style. Tai Chi really helps with my overall health and improving my flexibility. Sigung Maury is talented, calming, and very patient with his students. And, the students encourage each other!
As a more mature martial artist, I have thoroughly enjoyed my years of training in the Tai chi program. Not only has it strengthened me physically, I find the atmosphere mentally relaxing. After a hard day of work, what a joy to come to class, greet my Tai chi family, have an engaging and interactive class, and leave the mat energized and refreshed.
