The Sun Style of tai chi is gentle on challenged joints while imparting a sense of calm and peace. Each session includes warm-ups, flow of routine, detailed practice of new movement, then cool downs. While tai chi is a martial art practiced in slow motion, these classes emphasize health, not fighting applications. Most of us want to feel our best, not fight. 😉.
Tai chi imparts numerous health benefits. Some of these include: improved balance, coordination and agility; better focus and decision-making; reducation of chronic pain; boosts immune functions; reduces the effects of stress; significantly enhances self-esteem and body image; balances blood pressure and cardiovascular functions; more core strength and flexibility; a sense of calm and belonging in the world.
Traditional Sun 73 Tai Chi takes participants deep into a long, flowing routine that imparts a sense of lightness, strength and agility while creating better balance and mindfulness. To learn this long form takes serious commitment and dedication. For those who aren't ready to commit to on-going tai chi "homework" or at home practice, Tai Chi 1 & 2 are recommended instead of this class.
Because learning a long tai chi form requires more dedicated practice time, 2 sessions per week are being offered: Wednesday evenings 6:30-7:45pm INSIDE the Indian Harbor Beach Recreation Center and Saturday mornings 10:00-11:30 OUTSIDE in Gleason Park at the same facility.
Optional video support is also available through the online Sun 73 Tai Chi course as part of the $7.99/mo Video Memberhsip. This is optional, not requried ;)
$10/class payable at class via Cash or through website Events. Or for $75/mo become an unlimited Class Member--access every class on the regular schedule + INCLUDES VIDEO MEMBERSHIP.
At about 150 years old, Sun Style tai chi is the most modern incarnation of the moving mediation called tai chi or tai chi chuan. It was developed by undefeated martial arts master Sun Lu Tang who was known to possess great energy skills. Unlike the other 4 traditional styles of tai chi, Sun Style places emphasis on awareness of breath throughout the entire practice. This emphasis on dan tien breathing brings more energy/chi into the flow which is built upon the agile stepping techniques found in BaGua Zhan.
Master Sun Lu Tang also built the tai chi routine to develop a lightness of being into the practitioner. The high stance of the routine, the softness of the steps and the use of dan tien breathing all combine in a particular alchemy that gives Sun Style tai chi practitioners the ability to seemingly float on their feet while also remaining solidly grounded. Sun Style tai chi is so highly refined that the Sun 73 tai chi routine is used in Olympic competition over other styles of tai chi.
