"Dear Allison and Allyn: Thank you and MoonWillow for helping me recover from two cardiac surgeries in a short amount of time. The Tai Chi practice has helped me gain strength and flexibility while I also work on regaining balance and stamina. It has meant so much during this pandemic to view you daily and participate on Zoom...I cannot tell you how much you have meant to me these past months. I have come so far and you have helped me so very much. I hope to be with MoonWilow for quite some time!"

What Is Tai Chi?
Tai Chi (pronounced "tie-CHEE") is an ancient, slow-moving exercise that originated in China around 1200 AD. It is a blend of Shaolin martial art movements and qigong breathing techniques to balance body, mind, and spirit. It works with one's vital life force known as chi - a living energy field that permeates and animates the body. Depletions and blocks in this field occur regularly from stress, poor diet/environment, and negative thought patterns.Tai Chi regenerates and balances this field, thereby cultivating a more harmonious being - physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Tai Chi is well known for its therapeutic benefits and is on the Mayo Clinic's Top Ten Complementary Therapies list.
Health Benefits of Tai Chi
Harvard Health Publications has called Tai Chi "medication in motion" for all the myriad health benefits it can help treat or prevent. (from www.worldtaichiday.org)
- Improves Posture, Balance, Flexibility, Stamina, Muscle Mass & Tone
- Reduces/Eliminates Chronic Pain
- Strengthens the Immune System
- Improves Heart Health & Blood Pressure
- Balances Digestion
- Reduces Stress, Anxiety, & Depression
- Slows (even Reverses) the Aging Process
