Meditation in Motion

 

Tai Chi Chuan is an excellent blend of mind, body, and spirit exercise for women and men of all ages.  Dating back to the 13th Century, its popularity around the world has steadily increased, and today it is one of the most respected Martial Arts.  Students greatly appreciate the ability to optimize the combination of structure and movement by utilizing the Yang 24 form taught in all class levels. 

Tai Chi Chuan has been revered for centuries as a mindful exercise program to promote longevity, well-being, and for releasing one's greatest potential.  Based on deep, abdominal breathing and slow, flowing, choreographed movements -  it is often described as “Meditation in Motion.”

Developed using the Principles of Acupuncture…..the physical and mental  benefits of Tai Chi are undeniable, and, there is another aspect to Tai Chi that is just as powerful and often overlooked. 

Tai Chi Chuan translated means Grand Ultimate Fist.  Mr. Lipe teaches Tai Chi Chuan for both Wellness and Protection.  Once a student is proficient in the Yang 24 Form, they may choose to also be trained to use these same controlled movements for real-world, humane self-defense.  This training will demonstrate the Pressure Point principles (Dianxue-Fa) behind each movement and give deeper meaning to our Tai Chi Chuan practice.
