There will be no Tai Chi classes Saturday, 1/27/18 through Thursday, 2/1/18. I will be going to the 5-day Yang Tai Chi Instructor’s Seminar in Seattle. I’m so excited! I am, also, anxious–I have never been away from my family for this long. I’ve planned accordingly, but I will miss them badly. Thank you, Mom, for coming over to help for 3 days out of the 5. I love you!
I just wanted to let you all know that I have added another class to the schedule. It is on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:30pm. This may make it easier for some of you after work. Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. I would love to hear from you.
I just found this YouTube video of Master Yang Jun doing the whole 103 Yang form. He is the grandson of Yang Zhenduo. They are both the descendants of Yang Luchan, who is the creator of the Yang Style Tai Chi.
This is the style of Tai Chi Chuan that I teach–true Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan. This is, also, the exact form that I teach to beginning students. It is beautiful; it is balancing; it is spiritual.
What a great New Year’s Resolution. Give me a call, shoot me an email, start this fabulous journey today.
Here is a great article from Harvard Health Publishing through Harvard Medical School. The only correction I have is they mention different styles of Tai Chi Chuan, with one of them being “Cheng”, which is incorrect, it is “Chen”. This family style is very dynamic and involves more evident spiraling and explosive movements.
I teach Yang family style which has an even tempo with large and smooth movements. I’ve done Chen, and LOVE it, but I am certified in Yang Style and have practiced this for many years.
Tai Chi Chuan is exceptionally healthy. It involves your body, mind and spirit. What more could you ask?
For those of you interested in what style of Tai Chi Chuan that I teach, or if you are already a student and would like a video to help remember what I taught you, here is a link to the YouTube video of Master Yang Jun performing the first section of the 103 form. Happy viewing!
Here is a link to a 10 page Tai Chi Clinical Review by the Canadian Family Physician.
“More than 500 studies and 120 systematic reviews have been published. The strongest evidence of benefit is for preventing falls in older adults living in the community, osteoarthritis, Parkinson disease, COPD rehabilitation, improving cognitive capacity, and improving balance and aerobic capacity.”
This is just the beginning of what Tai Chi Chuan can do for you.
Here is a Wikipedia link to Master Yang Jun. He is a direct descendent to Yang Cheng Fu and of Yang Lu Chan, the creator of Yang style Tai Chi Chuan. Master Yang Jun is the 5th lineage holder of the Yang style and is currently the President of the International Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan Association in Seattle, WA.
This Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan is the style that I practice and teach…genuine tai chi chuan. I am, also, a certified Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan instructor.
Anybody can practice Tai Chi Chuan…from one who has never exercised, to the senior citizen, to the practiced martial artist who wants to improve their technique flow, balance, grounding, and centering. It is, also, great for the person who just wants a moving meditation.
