Tai chi is practiced for relaxation, centering, and increasing internal power. Adults of all ages and levels of fitness can benefit from this calming, meditative martial art. Through practice of the tai chi form, students develop internal energy while strengthening muscles and joints. Many find tai chi helpful for healing and connecting body and spirit. Tai chi focuses on the breath and is essentially a form of meditation, or what has been called “meditation in motion.”
The yang style is the most common traditional style of tai chi practiced today; the yang style emphasizes the health benefits of tai chi and makes the art accessible. It is especially good for developing relaxed strength and balance. CAE teaches the yang short form of tai chi and the yang sword form.
