Tai Chi is one of the most multifaceted forms of exercise imaginable. With its roots in Chinese health exercises (meditation, yangsheng and qigong), martial arts, and Chinese medicine, it helps you achieve calm mind and healthy body. Tai Chi is the perfect antidote to stressful modern lifestyles, sedentary work, and "computeritis"! Tai Chi, like yoga and meditation, encourages mindfulness. Its health benefits are numerous: practitioners see great improvement in balance, fall prevention, lowered blood pressure, strengthened immune system, and easing of stiff-jointedness.
Great River Tai Chi has been offering classes in traditional Tai Chi since 1979, with a focus on how to apply Tai Chi to daily life. The style we practice is the Yang-style short form developed by Professor Cheng Man-ch'ing. Our instructors have trained with Professor Cheng's noted senior students in Taiwan and the United States, including Liu Hsi-hung, Ben Lo, Maggie Newman, Ed Young, and others. Our director, Barbara Davis, is at work on a full-length biography of Professor Cheng.
Tai Chi can be a life-changing, fun endeavor! Try it this fall!
