Tai Chi Revolution Volunteers at the Samaritan Center

“There is no better exercise for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.” John Andrew Holmes-author.

I think this quote says it better than I could…I will simply add a big thank you to Ros and all of the Tai Chi Revolution practitioners who took the time to volunteer at the Samaritan Center! You help to make the community strong!

Thank you to our members for your generosity!

Benefits of Regular Practice of Tai Chi

When I started practicing Tai Chi I wanted to learn as much as possible as quickly as possible.  I had a difficult time hearing my instructor’s advice to just immerse myself in the moment and not worry about every tiny detail.  Over time, I found that my instructor was right <LOL>.  The goal of learning the many forms in the set was not to just “learn” the set, but to use what I was learning about each form to understand how my body moved in response to my “internal” commands.   I began to realize how watching my angles, shifting my weight, and paying attention to my body’s strengths and limitations allowed me to focus my attention more on fundamentals.  That in turn has helped me to better understand and master the flow of  body movements used in Tai Chi and to find the benefits of this “moving meditation”.

If you want to learn more about the importance of consistency in the practice of Tai Chi you may find this article from SlantedFlying.com helpful.

If you are interested in learning Tai Chi or want to get back into the practice, please feel free to e-mail us at TaiChiRevolutionCNY@gmail.com.   Check back soon – we will be posting the start date for a new beginners class soon!  We look forward to seeing you in the studio!

Tai Chi Revolution’s Intensive Class

This is what you’ve been waiting for

and it’s finally here!

On SUNDAY, March 11, 2018 Tai Chi Revolution is going to host an Intensive Class for our members.  This is a FREE class for all members to attend.

The studio will open at 11:15 am and class will start at 11:30.  We will open the first hour of class with foundation and strengthening exercises then work on several Qi Gong  (“Chi Gong”) moves.  Qi Gong has been used for thousands of years in China to build energy, improve and maintain health and cultivate peace of mind.  These moves are designed for the beginner and fit in well with our Tai Chi practice.  After Qi Gong we will break for a pot luck lunch (a selection of snacks, quiche, soup, fruit salad, and desserts will be available).  After lunch we will practice our Tai Chi. Class will end at 2:00 pm.

This is an opportunity for all students to share a class and the fun of a potluck. We  encourage all the beginner students to come and see what Qi Gong is and to practice a part of the set that you may not be familiar with.
Please feel welcome to come to part or all of the intensive! We look forward to seeing everyone.
