Today at our early morning Tai Chi class, we’ve practiced the 8 stands ( Long fist ) at the Colorado Center, Santa Monica. Strengthening our foundation and better understanding the principles that govern Tai Chi Chuan. Naturally extending your muscles ligaments and tendons expending one’s mobility and well being. Exercise to maintain health and prevent illness.
As an old Chinese medicine proverb say: “Every 1/2 inch of ligaments stretched can extend life span by 10 healthy years”.
Today, Wednesday March 22nd, we had our morning Qigong and Tai Chi class at the beautiful Holmby Park in Westwood, CA . We practiced the 8 stands for greater understanding of our postures, open our meridian lines, improving the energy flow, improving our health. We also worked on Move, Parry and Punch (Ban Lan Chui) from the old Yang Style Tai Chi first set.
I’m very excited to share our new website with you and the world. It has been long time in the making. Finally through the wonderful help of Shaleah it is now realized.
It has been a year and a half since the conception of Be Like Water Tai Chi. In addition to a core of dedicated students and steady class schedule; we now have a more robust online presence with social media and an upgraded site. This is a place to promote our school, welcome new students, communicate about martial art, history, and share the numerous health benefits, wellness and mindfulness aspects of Tai Chi. The site will also serve as a place for the school community to connect, keep in touch with each other and the teachers, study and follow their own progress.
Tai Chi brought Harmony to my life. I was able to build mind and body awareness that kept me away from chronic and debilitating pain caused by Sciatic pinched nerve, and brought happiness and joy by making better choices in my life. The Tai Chi practice shows me how to let go of tension, how to open my mind and allow natural energy flow through my body. Tai Chi restores order, which in turn brings healing energy and positive outlook on life, restful and energetic existence. Daily practice boosts my immune system making me more resistant to disease. Having the physical, mental and spiritual tools has opened a door for profound self-improvement. I am looking forward for new places to be revealed.
