Dwell in your body
Taiji Quan is an ancient internal boxing style that is said to have been discovered by Zhang San Feng, a legendary
Daoist monk. Zhang San Feng is said to have discovered Taiji Quan through watching, some say imagining, a crane and a snake in a deadly combat. Each part would display certain specific principles of movement, which inspired a further integration of the philosophy of Yin and Yang.
Yin and Yang are two polarities that act together and play out through in our reality. Through Taiji Quan we learn to navigate those two polarities and learn about their natural relationship. Our awareness becomes heightened, with practise we develop sensitivity and internal strength, it also sharpens our sense of opponent and ability to adapt smoothly.
Taiji Quan practise helps you focus in the present moment.
Among its many benefits, this class helps improve numerous aspects of your life including the ability to adapt, just like water. It requires a lot of dedication and humility, as it takes time to dive deeper and deeper into this magical method. Taiji Quan is a beautiful language of truth, enhancing your relationship with your feeling, helping you with grounding yourself amidst challenges. It is a method that deepens your understanding of natural laws. Naturally all of this affects your physical and mental health positively.
