EXPLORE THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF TAI CHI

NO PAIN = BIG GAIN

The ancient Chinese believed that true health comes when body, mind and spirit work together in harmony.

HEALTH. HARMONY. STILLNESS.

BODY | MIND | SPIRIT

Tai Chi grew out of this tradition. It is a way to develop a body that is strong, yet supple, balanced and energetic. It is a way to develop a mind that is calm and clear, yet creative and dynamic. It is a way to develop a spirit that is light and peaceful, yet resilient. Tai Chi involves stretching, continuous motion, and turning of the spine. We exercise the whole physiology including muscular, skeletal, and circulatory systems, as well as tendons, joints, connective tissue and organs. Rather than depending on tension and the development of hard muscle tissue, these arts develop a body that is relaxed and strong at the deepest levels. The gentle internal movements are balanced throughout the body and have a calming effect on the mind. BE Martial Arts Tai Chi is truly a moving meditation.

4 REAL BENEFITS TO TAI CHI

Tai Chi reduce stress and has a beneficial effect on many conditions, from sore backs to mental health issues. The many stories of improvement to health and quality of life from people of all ages are very true. These arts also have a profoundly beneficial effect on deeper health issues such as MS or Parkinson’s Disease or problems resulting from traumatic injury.

Tai chi can improve both lower-body strength and upper-body strength. When practiced regularly, tai chi can be comparable to resistance training and brisk walking. “Although you aren’t working with weights or resistance bands, the unsupported arm exercise involved in tai chi strengthens your upper body,” says internist Dr. Gloria Yeh, an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School. “Tai chi strengthens both the lower and upper extremities and also the core muscles of the back and abdomen.”

Tai chi improves balance and reduces falls. Proprioception, the ability to sense the position of one’s body in space, declines with age. Tai chi helps train this sense, which is a function of sensory neurons in the inner ear and stretch receptors in the muscles and ligaments. Tai chi also improves muscle strength and flexibility, which makes it easier to recover from a stumble. Fear of falling can make you more likely to fall; some studies have found that tai chi training helps reduce that fear.

When you are looking for a big calorie burn, tai chi may not come to mind. Although the movements are performed in a slow, controlled manner, the exercise system actually burns a fair number of calories. During one hour of Tai Chi training the calorie burn is around 300!
