Introduction to Tai Chi (Taiji Chuan) The complete Tai Chi system includes etiquette, stretching, Chan Ssu Jin (Silk Reeling Exercises), Yow Jin (Waist Training), Form and Posture Work, Standing Meditation, Push Hands, Fan, and Swords – Saber and Jian. As there are many paths in the world, so too are there many paths in Tai Chi. In order to properly understand Tai Chi one must first perceive it for what it is. Tai Chi is a tool, a man-made device designed to bring about harmony and balance between energy and mass body, mind and spirit. Through diligent and steady practice comes, as the Chinese say, “The Ten Thousand Things”, a euphemism for everything harmonious. What you will be learning is the Yang Style Form and practice routines that constantly evolve and expand to include Etiquette, Stretching, Chan Ssu Jin (Silk Reeling Exercises), Yow Jin (Waist Training), Form and Posture, Standing Meditation, Push Hands and Combat Applications. Tai Chi classes will teach you meditation in movement and exercises designed to massage internal organs (liver, intestines, stomach, spleen, kidneys, etc.). Also to give flexibility to the spine, create a better sense of balance, stretch tendons and tone muscles in the arms and legs. There is always a martial arts aspect involved in Tai Chi Chuan (the name Taiji Chuan, after all, means “Grand Ultimate Boxing or Fighting”). Most of the movements will be described physically in terms of attack and defense for those who are curious about the meaning or reason for particular types of movement at the same time when these movements are performed correctly the health aspects and benefits increase making it a great healing art as well. There is also a philosophical and spiritual side of Tai Chi that can raise the quality of life and give someone peace and contentment. . . . .

MYSORE LAS VEGAS MYSORE CLASS MONDAY-THURSDAY 7:30-9:30AM Mysore, named after the energetic city in South India is the traditional approach to Ashtanga yoga where the practitioner receives one on one instruction of breath and movement as they move through a sequence of postures. When you do not know what you are doing next, your attention will always be on your teacher taking the focus off of yourself. In this class, the student memorizes the sequence of postures and develops a self practice allowing themselves to focus internally bringing a great depth of awareness, clarity, and internal strength. Through the focus on drishti (looking point) and correct use of breath and movement (vinyasa), this method guides the practitioner to a deep meditative state. This practice does not favor the physically strong and will not shadow any weak spots in the practitioner. Come any time between the 7-9am time frame giving yourself enough time to practice. Opening chant starts at 7:40am.
