If you want a great butt do squats. But try Tai Chi if you want to see the world in a better light; or maybe just remember where you left those keys.
How do we stay sharp and improve recall? Or focused and attentive? How about staying in the zone? Can we do something that will aid our mind? Some of us read, others try crosswords and other puzzles like Sudoku. Juggling is considered a great way to fire up the brain.
Tai Chi is another. It is a deep learning experience. Any learning experience helps to keep you attentive and strengths your mind. But Tai Chi simulates a tremendous puzzle with many moving parts. The vast majority of Tai Chi moves are not physically demanding. In fact most of the challenges that students face come from their perception of a move.
How can you move your hands without moving your hands? Why do you first go right if you really intended to go left? How can you "effortlessly" move opponents at will? Why is it that if you want to win you don't resist?
Make no mistake about it, Tai Chi is great for your body. Additionally it is beneficial for your mind. There have been many studies that link exercise to better brain activity. But Tai Chi goes beyond that. Giving us fresh paradigms which in turn build new pathways in our head.
Every Sat. 9:30-10:00 AM Free Tai Chi.
