Practiced in the East for centuries, the flowing movements of tai chi have been known to promote health and inner harmony.

According to Chinese medicine, the benefits of this ancient martial art come from unblocking and encouraging the proper flow of chi, the energy force that flows throughout the body. Western medicine hasn’t typically addressed the body’s ‘energy forces,’ but that might be about to change.

According to the 2019 Harvard University Women’s Health Watch, ‘tai chi is often described as meditation in motion, but it might well be called medication in motion,’ thanks to its uses in prevention and treatment of health issues.

Welcome to Tai Chi for Aging with Strength and Tranquility, led by International Master Tai Chi Instructor David-Dorian Ross. Although learning a new form of exercise can feel intimidating, Mr. Ross removes any potential anxiety with his calming voice and easy manner, as he encourages you to just follow along and copy his healing movements. As he explains throughout the course: There is nothing to memorize here and nothing to learn. As long as you keep breathing, smiling, and moving, you’re doing everything exactly right.

Tai Chi Fit Postures

In this course, you’ll explore many of the classic tai chi postures as you exercise along with your instructor in a slow, continual rhythm. The goal of each program is for you to enjoy the many benefits that come from tai chi’s gentle movements-not for you to memorize the tai chi forms or focus on the technique of any particular posture.

However, even without trying, you’ll begin to recognize some of the tai chi postures through repetition-especially those whose names describe the movements, including:

Brushing the Knee,
Looking for the Needle at the Bottom of the Ocean,
Old Woman Digs in the Garden,
Patting the High Horse,
Rooster Stands on One Leg,
Wagging the Tail, and
Wise Owl Looks Behind.

These postures, and many others, involve the slow lifting of the arms, twisting of the torso, bending forward, lifting the legs, and other movements that help improve range of motion, strength, and balance without the typical risk of injury or strain that can come from a high-impact workout.

Tai Chi Fusion

Mr. Ross describes tai chi as a workout that is also a system of self-defense, a shield against disease, a beautiful dance, and a living philosophy of harmony and balance. What else could you possibly need? Actually, Mr. Ross says there are times we might want to take our exercise practice just a little further than tai chi alone-especially as we get older. For that reason, he has created Tai Chi Fusion.

The fusion concept is based on an ancient Chinese philosophy known as the theory of applied elements: wood, water, fire, earth, and metal. Each different mind-body discipline represents a different element, and the fusion of two elements together teaches us about a new principle that enhances our experience.
