We are very pleased to welcome Chen Bing Taiji Academy to our Garden on Saturday mornings from 10:30 am – 11:30 am through March 1st.
This is a great chance to explore something new if you've never experienced the full-body therapy of Taiji (Tai Chi) and will be a great addition to your practice if you are already a student.
Drop-in students are encouraged to attend and pricing will remain at an introductory rate of $10 per member / $12 per non-member, through this series until March 1st.
From Chen Bing Taiji Academy:
Taiji or Tai chi (meaning grand ultimate) is a Chinese soft style internal martial art used for centuries in health, healing and longevity. Based on ancient principles of yin yang theory, philosophical laws of nature (the Tao), authentic Chen Taiji is a holistic training method used to cultivate a strong body, mind and spirit through techniques of mental concentration with coordinated breath and body movements. Proper practice results in an improved postural alignment, balance and bone density. Taiji harmonizes external and internal energy flow which strengthen muscles, while the internal spiraling energy massages internal organs and circulates qi energy flow throughout the body.
Additional benefits include a deeper sense of natural breathing along with a concentrated and tranquil mind. Strong emphasis is placed on intention and mental focus and is a suitable practice for all ages of students with various ailments and conditions.
Chen Taiji founded by Chen Wangting, is the oldest and parent form of all the styles of Taiji including Yang, Wu and Sun. The instructors are fortunate to have the opportunity to learn from Laoshi (teacher) Master Bosco Baek, the only disciple in America of Master Chen Bing and the direct descendant of its creator Chen Wangting. Master Bosco Baek teaches the authentic Chen Jia Gou (Chen Village) system and is a most knowledgeable and skillful teacher.
Spring series starts on March 15th through every Saturday until May 3rd.
