Tai Chi for Students

What Is Tai Chi  Stress Relief Training?
Gentle, healing exercise and breathing.  Tai Chi Stress Relief Training includes gentle exercise that is healing and energizing for the whole person—body, mind, emotions and spirit.  It consists of traditional Chinese Tai Chi and Qigong practices that have stood the test of time and that are being practiced by millions of people around the world today for their health benefits. Gentle movement is accompanied by diaphragmatic breathing, and relaxing, healing visualization.
Diaphragmatic Breathing
Story form. Tai Chi and Qigong have nature imagery, such as wind, water, mountains, growing plants, sun, moon, stars, animals and birds, that add to the beauty and visualization of the movements. I teach the movements accompanied by a narrative that makes them easy to remember.  The “Good Day” narrative associates a set of movements and breathing with challenges students face in the course of everyday life. These include: 
• Good beginnings (positive attitude, greeting the sun, stretching out the sky)
 Addressing problems (calming waves, moving mountains)
 Growing and changing (plants, blossoming flowers, trees)
 Reaching out for new possibilities (sun and moon movements)
 Becoming wise (birds and sea creatures, plus sensitivity training)
 Becoming strong and taking charge (assertive movements such as Lion, Tiger and Bear)
 Rest and refreshment (includes energy self massage)
Emotional benefits: The movements, breathing and imagery in Tai Chi Stress Relief offer a way for emotions to be gently acknowledged and released. For example, “Calm the Waves” invites participation in calming the inner emotional waves and the outer waves of troubling circumstances. “Move the Mountain” offers a feeling of empowerment in addressing overwhelming obstacles. Imitating a Lion or Bear builds up courage and assertiveness, while the repetition of circled arms in the “Good Day” posture supports facing the day with a positive attitude.
