SUMMER 2018: T’ai Chi – Balance Of A Lifetime


An introduction to this Chinese “slow motion meditation for health and self-protection,” is your key to generating a calm center, releasing stress, improving balance, and increasing available energy. We will focus on the most popular sequence in the Northeast – Professor Cheng’s Short Form, Yang Family Style. Each class will include a partner practice, “helping each other learn to relax,” as Master Ben Lo on the west coast put it, through “increasing sensitivity and responsivity”. Though Tai Ci did originate as a martial art, this course emphasizes its meditative, stress-reducing and energy balancing aspects.  This is a one-hour class. Please wear comfortable stretchable clothing.


Ty Griese has a M.Ed. in Adaptive Physical Education from Springfield College, and has been a student of T’ai Chi since 1969, sharing this fine art since 1976. His principle instructors have been Myles MacVane, student of Professor Cheng, Man-Ching, Master William C.C. Chen (live-in protégé of the Professor on Taiwan) and Chung-Liang (Al) Huang – Humanistic Psychology and the Human.
