T’ai Chi Chih offers different benefits, according to what each individual needs.
My own story has been an exhilarating journey toward greater aliveness and wellness as I learn to live my life in a healthier, freer. more engaged way. I have new and renewed energy in body, mind and spirit, better enabling me to celebrate each day’s gifts and more fully embrace and flow with each day’s delights and challenges.
Significant health issues I was initially told I would simply have to learn to live with, that there was no turning them around, continue to increasingly improve, contrary to what conventional medical books say is possible.
What do my students around the province say about it?
Some describe it as relaxing, gentle, peaceful, soothing. Others welcome the contrast it provides to the rest of their busy lives. They often come for simple relaxation and find that T’ai Chi Chih offers so much more, including, in the words of Justin Stone, the originator of T’ai Chi Chih, “a strength far different from muscular strength, a growth in confidence, a belief in ourselves and in the centre of our being.”
As one student expressed it, “Doing it just feels good!”
