TAI CHI and QI GONG with CHARLENE GLAW
Tai Chi is often referred to as “meditation in motion” because the slow and steady sequential movements help in assisting spiritual cultivation, and initiates connection of the mind and body. Each posture flows into the next without pause, ensuring that your body is in constant motion.
Though its roots date back to ancient China as a practice for self-defense, Tai Chi has evolved into an effective way to reduce stress, among many other health benefits. Tai Chi Yang Style 8-form is low-intensity and will cover the basic movements. There are more advanced forms to follow.
