Classes & Events — Tai Chi + Qigong
TAI CHI + QIGONG w/Cheri Maffei-Wolff (she/her) — 6:30pm ET, 3:30pm PT
$16, $20, $24 sliding scale
Tai Chi and Qigong practices emphasize the cultivation of energy and the nurturing of internal power via intentional movements and inward focus. Tai Chi forms and Qigong exercises evolved from ancient Daoist philosophy through the cultivation of Chinese martial arts.
Tai Chi (also known as Taiji or Taijiquan) emphasizes the dynamic interaction of yin and yang, complimentary opposites, and the changing nature of all things. Emphasis is placed on relaxing the body and calming and focusing the mind. The sequence of movements promote balance, and efficiency.
Qigong (pronounced chi-gong) means to work or exercise the qi (energy). Qigong exercises gather and circulate qi and blood, regulate the nervous system, and promote relaxation and tranquility.
“One’s inner spirit is not only nurtured and molded by tai chi practice, but also is inherently reflected in practice.”
- Yang Yang, Ph.D. and author of: Taijiquan: The Art of Nurturing, The Science of Power
“With your whole being, develop your life.”
- from the classical Song of Real Meaning
Our weekly practice will guide us in the Yang style Tai Chi form (24 movements), and a range of rejuvenating Qigong exercises. No experience necessary. Dress comfortably with flat, flexible shoes (ex. Keds, Vans, Sperry's) or bare feet.
