Harvard promotes Tai Chi

In this post I’m letting Harvard do the talking about the health benefits of Tai Chi and Qigong practice.  I’m including a  link to a page which provides results of studies they have carried out validating the power of this ancient form of moving meditation and flowing exercise system, which has been proven to reverse illness as well as prevent it.

The art of Tai Chi developed over millennia in the East and is known to slow down the ageing process considerably and, when practiced with awareness, brings restful expansion and flexibility at the very least, and heightened spiritual awareness at its optimum.  One of the benefits, at a most basic level is a very refined attunement with ones body so any discord is noticed immediately thereby facilitating preventive action as soon as possible.

While  orientals speak of Jing, Qi and Shen as the three treasures of Tai Chi; various forms of energy kept flowing and vitalised through the practice of this health giving art, the Harvard people speak in terms of a Western understanding of the practice granting a more immediate access to this wonderful gift from the East.


As clicking on the above link won’t work for some inexplicable reason (!), copy and paste into your browser to read the very informative article above.

So, wherever you are, at whatever stage of health, fitness or age, check out Tai Chi classes near you to gift yourself the best chance of enhancing your quality of life, simply and affordably, anywhere.
