Tai Chi

Q: What if I am injured or have a past injury?
A: Although Tai Chi is generally safe, women who are pregnant or people with joint problems, back pain, fractures, severe osteoporosis or a hernia should consult their health care provider before trying Tai Chi. Modification or avoidance of certain postures may be recommended. Also, talk with the instructor before class to discuss your injury and limitations. We always try to offer modifications in class, but this will allow the instructor to plan or assist you during class, should you need it.
Q: What should I expect in class?
A: Your first class is typically the most challenging, regardless of what age or physical shape you are in. Even though the movements are slow and gentle, they're still new to you, your muscles are working, and it may be somewhat tiring. But don't lose heart! Most new students will tell you that they feel energized and have a great feeling of well-being after just one class. Usually by the third class, they are hooked on Tai Chi and attend regularly.
Q: What exactly is Tai Chi and why should I try it?
A: Tai Chi has evolved into a graceful, meditative form of exercise that's now used for stress reduction and a variety of other health conditions. It promotes serenity through gentle, flowing movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing. When performed regularly, you can benefit from decreased stress, anxiety and depression; improved mood and aerobic capacity; increased energy and stamina; greater flexibility, balance and agility; and enhanced muscle strength and definition.
Q: Do I have to be in shape to do Tai Chi?
A: No. The most common misconception that prevents people from doing Tai Chi is that they think they must be in shape first. Tai Chi is not about how fit and coordinated you are; it's about moving and optimizing your body and mind to develop and increase your strength, balance, flexibility, and overall health and happiness. With time, practice and patience, you will most likely benefit from getting and staying in shape.
