Discover how Tai Chi addresses key components of fitness – strength, flexibility, balance.
On any given day, if we’re not stressed about the pandemic, we’re consumed by the “what ifs” swirling around our unpredictable world. It’s no wonder we’re exhausted, burned out, and feeling completely out of sorts.
Many people have turned to meditation to calm and center themselves, but for those of us who can’t easily quiet the busyness of our minds, what can we do?
The answer lies in the ancient Chinese martial art of Tai Chi.
Tai Chi is a beautifully choreographed slow-motion, low-impact practice renowned for calming the mind while reducing stress and clearing negative energies. It’s often described as “meditation in motion” because it engages both your mind and body — whereas exercise and meditation primarily engage one or the other.
On Wednesday, September 15, renowned Tai Chi Master Helen Liang will show you how soothing Tai Chi can be for calming your mind, while dynamically strengthening your body and bringing balance back into your life.

In this free, experiential Tai Chi workshop, you’ll discover:
- How deliberate movement can heal us on a physical, mental, and spiritual level
- How Tai Chi, if practiced regularly, is comparable to resistance training in how it strengthens the body
- The way the opposing forces of Yin and Yang work together to activate peace and harmony
- Why the key to cultivating Qi energy is in slow, fluid motions
- The Taoist philosophy behind Tai Chi and the reason it is considered a soft internal martial arts style
Tai Chi’s purpose is to move your Qi, your life-force energy, throughout your body while also balancing your yin and yang — forces that are opposite but complementary to one another — to bring your whole being into harmony.
Master Helen will lead you in a shortened, modified version of 8-Posture Form to show you how easy this martial art form is to learn — and how it can be performed at any time or place, without requiring a lot of space, special equipment, clothing, or footwear. Even if you have some physical limitations, Master Helen will be able to easily modify the practice so that it can work for you.
