Tai chi is typically practiced today as a system of fluid, low - impact movements for the benefit of health and wellness. Tai chi can be viewed as a form of active meditation (or “meditation in motion”), whereby the mind/body connection is developed and used to c oordinate movements through mental awareness. This type of practice, in turn, has been associated with a variety of benefits, including relief of stress, better balance, and improvement in concentration, coordination, and circulation. In this class, we wil l focus on the Wu style of tai chi, a traditional form of tai chi going back five generations, characterized by smaller, more compact movements than other styles.
