Welcome to BEGIN - 30 Days of Tai Chi
Join me for an orientation to your 30 day journey into tai chi! This welcome video contains some tips to support you during the program. We also ask the question, “Why do I want to BEGIN?”
Day 4 - Balance Body and Mind
In this session, we introduce some new tai chi balance movements to help create stability and prevent falls. This will also help you feel more stable and confident in life!
Day 5 - Release Tension
Most people don't realize how much tension they are carrying around in their daily lives. In this class, we start to notice and release tension and stress from mind and body.
Day 6 - Total Body Stretch
This program is designed to create flexibility in your mind and body. While today’s session successfully targets the whole body, it is not just about the physical part of you.
Day 7 - Breathe Easy
The breath is a window into the nervous system. When our breathing is shallow and fast, we are likely in a low, medium, or high-grade stressed state. When the breath is deep and slow, we are likely in a relaxed state which is ideal for healing.
Day 8 - Rejuvenate and Renew
Tai Chi is based on the concept of Yin and Yang - the universe is made up of opposite but balancing forces. Therefore, it’s ok to be very active and busy but we need to balance this out with rest and relaxation so that we don’t get burnt out and suffer.
Day 11 - Calm and Focused
Everyone gets stressed out at some point. Sometimes we do or say things we regret when we’re caught in the fight-or-flight response or flooded with other emotions.
Day 12 - Feel and Look Younger
Some say that Tai Chi is like the fountain of youth because it taps into our nervous system and puts us in the rest and digest state. This allows our bodies to heal and our minds to be at ease.
Day 13 - Relaxation of Body and Mind
One of the beautiful things about tai chi is that it can help relax your mind and your body. In fact, the two are so interconnected that one usually affects the other!
Day 16 - Core Strength
Building a strong core is essential to moving in life, exercising, and with tai chi. When we have a weak core, we tend to compensate with other muscles and patterns.
Day 29 - Forgiveness
One of the most difficult things to do is to forgive. Whether it’s forgiving ourselves or others, it can be hard to let go of the resentments and grievances we’ve held on to for so long.
