Tai Chi

Tai Chi with Holly Ojeda

Tai Chi has been called “Moving Meditation”

because the slow, graceful movements can

induce a deep sense of peacefulness.  At the same time, the complexity of the movements

requires intense concentration similar to those experienced when creating a work of art.  The result for many is a sense of timelessness, serenity and the experience of being fully present.

Western scientists have noted that Tai Chi’s slow, deliberate movements help patients improve balance and flexibility.  People with specific ailments, such as arthritis, have found relief from some symptoms.  Beyond the benefits of the movements themselves, learning Tai Chi can yield impressive results in reducing falls and alleviating various symptom.
