About this course:

Recent research shows that tai chi offers many health benefits, especially for seniors. These benefits accrue from living and moving in accord with tai chi principles. In this course, we explore how these principles impact our daily lives and learn to embody them through a short tai chi form. Through understanding the orienting contexts of presence, inner awareness, relaxation, and elasticity, we explore how these principles may transform and integrate spirit, mind, inner being, and the body. By applying them, we can alleviate stress, develop peace of mind, encourage emotional well-being, and increase our energy, as well as enhance bodily strength, balance, and efficiency.
