Tai chi is described as the 'grand ultimate' creating a sense of ease and flow that can be brought into your everyday life.  It is also described as an 'elixir of youth' because of the many health benefits and 'meditation in motion' acknowledging the positive effects for mental wellbeing.   Enjoy

Tai chi is good for immunity.  There have been studies with viruses like shingles showing a quicker recovery. Traditionally it is used for a variety of ailments including TB and cancer.   It does not reduce immunity like exercise that places the body under stress.  Use lifestyle to help lower the risk of the health services being overwhelmed.

 

Tai chi is not highly aerobic (even though it improves lung capacity) making it safer than many other exercise classes in terms of catching covid.   Airflow is also taken into consideration.

 

Vaccine Passports will be required 

 

Class sizes are limited to 10 for beginners.   One koha class on Wednesday 9th February  7.30 pm at Papanui (corner Chapel St and Harewood Rd). Free session on the social page.  Since I only have 10 spaces they will go to people enrolling for the term.

 

Keep Healthy and Safe.   Improve your immunity now.

Tai chi can be targeted towards your vulnerabilities and modified for you, by you, to meet your needs.  Learning Tai chi is like learning to drive a car.....it can take time to get all the pieces to fall into place but once you have these better habits they can go into automatic. Relax and Breathe.  Work from your own place of power.

 

"Tai chi has many layers to piece together.  It is like an apple computer, simple and elegant on the outside while having complex systems below the surface"   Bruce Frantzis
