What is Chi and why do you need to MOVE it? Chi is the life force or energy that moves your circulation, warms your body and supplies your organs with oxygen rich blood.
Moving your chi circulates more oxygen to the tissues and nourishes the joints, making you feel more vibrant and energized. Continual sitting can create stagnation or blockage of the body’s chi. We practice the “moving meditation” of Tai Chi with slow, deep breathing and continually-flowing movements to keep the chi moving freely, balancing and harmonizing the body’s yin and yang energy.
Other benefits of Tai Chi can include normalizing and stabilizing blood pressure, help prevent cardiovascular disease, aiding lymphatic circulation. All ages and abilities, whether standing or sitting, find that Tai Chi improves coordination throughout the body and promotes increased muscle fiber tone.
