Maximize Well-Being and Inner Peace with Tai Chi Easy™
"Tai chi is often described as 'meditation in motion,' but it might well be called 'medication in motion.' There is growing evidence that this mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems. And you can get started even if you aren't in top shape or the best of health." - Harvard Women's Health Watch May 2009

Become a Tai Chi Easy Practice Leader
Tai Chi Easy™ is designed to improve the quality of life for people of all ages– whether well or unwell. This includes those who may be dealing with disease, chronic pain and health conditions, limited mobility, deficient immune systems, anxiety or depression. Using simplified Tai Chi based on the four major recognized styles of Tai Chi, this program is straightforward and highly adaptable resulting in empowerment in self-care and self management skills.
This style includes steps and exercises that improve mobility, breathing and relaxation. The movements don't require deep bending or squatting, which makes it easier and more comfortable to learn. In addition, the instruction includes seated and standing stationary versions of all the movements. This encourages people of all levels and abilities to learn and participate.
The program itself consists of 10 movements — 5 basic and 5 advanced — a warm up and a cool down, self-massage, breath exercises, and meditation. Once becoming familiar with the movements and exercises, the program is designed to provide continual challenge by gently "holding" postures and being conscious of weight-shifting and limb position, including doing the movements in different sequence, such as reversing the direction of the movements.
Students and practitioners develop their abilities to focus and concentrate in a deep state of relaxation through breath practices, movement, meditation and self-massage providing simple, effective self-care skills that can be used throughout life and well into the "successful aging" process.
