 Those lazy days of summer are mostly over.  The weather is changing and it feels energizing.  Back at Macalester  the students are excited about learning Tai Chi.  It reminds me of all of the reasons that I love practicing Tai Chi Chuan.  As a very young person tai chi helped build my stamina.  Because of my tai chi practice  I relaxed more and did not feel so stressed by my busy schedule.  Over the years tai chi has become the stable practice that helps work out the physically tough times.  It continues to relieve the stress too.  Why practice Tai Chi Chuan?  Well I will tell you, because it feels so good.
 

So the invitation is open.  Come and find out what practicing tai chi is all about.  Questions are welcome.

If only I had a little more time I think I'd like to learn Tai Chi Chuan.  I hear that a lot. So I ask "why do you want to learn tai chi chuan?" Usually, the answer is  " I want to reduce the stress in my life" or  "improve my flexibility", I want to improve my balance and learn to meditate"  or " I just want to use tai chi for relaxation"  and some even say "improve my health and for self-defense".  I myself practice tai chi for all of these reasons and more.   There is one more reason that I practice tai chi chuan and that reason is because it is fun.  I really have fun and get great enjoyment from my tai chi practice. 

So the invitation is open.  Come and find out what practicing tai chi is all about.  Questions are welcome.

I think it is great that the characteristic word for the year of the dog is Action.  It seems like a perfect way to begin the new year, having a plan of Action.  And part of that plan is to be active.  Practicing tai chi chuan is a very good way to be active.  Join us at Chinatown Tai Chi Center to celebrate the Year of the Dog.
