Tai Chi was created in Chenjiagou (Chen Village) in Henan province, China, where it continues to be practiced to this day. Initially developed as a martial art, Tai Chi has been found to have significant positive health effects. In this Study Group, participants will learn foundational practices of Chen Village Tai Chi including tai chi relaxation (Fang Song) and practices for the cultivation of the Elixir Field—chi energy. No previous Tai Chi experience is necessary. All the movements are slow and gentle, and no martial arts applications will be taught or practiced in this Study Group. These methods may help lessen body pain, correct spinal misalignment, cultivate a sense of internal energy, and rest the mind. Participants can wear comfortable roomy or stretchy clothing and some soft tai chi shoes or socks to wear on their feet. Since we will be on carpet, they could be barefoot if they are comfortable doing so.
