Wu-style Taijiquan centers on 108 fundamental movements, a discipline that rejuvenates physically, mentally, and spiritually. As we refine the form, we learn how to channel energy and cultivate health and wellness.
Circulating blood and Qi can alleviate both psychological and physical stagnation, strengthen the immune system and enhance overall well-being. Research has also shown that contemplative practices reduce stress and anxiety while increasing clarity, self-esteem and short and long term memory.
Class begins with a warm-up designed to open and relax the joints and Qigong exercises that coordinate breath, movement and intention. Depending on the focus on the class we will work on Taiji walking, stance training, kicks or two-person exercises. We then move into form practice. Class generally ends with a short meditation. Classes are 75 minutes in length.
