T’ai Chi Chih is a series of 19 simple, gentle movements that activate, circulate and balance the intrinsic energy of the body known as chi. The practice can be performed by individuals of most any age, ability or condition, while standing or sitting.

Considered a moving meditation, its daily practice enables the mind to become less distracted and the heart to become more centered and peaceful, enabling one to live in the present moment. Originated in 1974 by Justin Stone, some of the reported benefits from this evidence-based practice include enhanced energy and stamina, balance, flexibility, bone density, sleep, immune response, creativity, mental focus and clarity.  It has also reduced or regulated stress, blood pressure, cholesterol, metabolism/weight, arthritic symptoms and depression.

T’ai Chi Chih has been endorsed as a positive and beneficial practice by The Arthritis Foundation, The American Medical Association, The Mayo Clinic Health Letter and the Tufts University Health and Nutrition Letter.  Publications from UCLA’s Neuropsychiatric Institute have shown the positive effects of TCC on the elderly.   An instructional series on “T’ai Chi Chih: Joy Thru Movement” has been televised by PBS for over 14 years.
