Chen taiji internal active relaxation classes starting in Santa Monica.

As a Aikido practitioner I thought this class might be of interest and benefit to other practitioners.

Authentic Chen Taiji is a holistic training method used to cultivate a strong body, mind and spirit through techniques of mental concentration with coordinated breath and body movements. Proper practice results in a supple body with improved postural alignment, balance and bone density. Harmonizes external and internal energy flow which strengthen muscles, tendons and ligaments; while the internal spiraling energy massages internal organs and circulates qi energy flow throughout the body. Additional benefits include a deeper sense of natural breathing along with a concentrated and tranquil mind. Strong emphasis is placed on intention and mental focus and is a suitable practice for all ages of students with various ailments and conditions.

Chen taiji founded by Chen Wangting, is the oldest and parent form of all the styles of Taiji including Yang, Wu and Sun.

We are fortunate to have the opportunity to learn from Laoshi (teacher) or Master Bosco Baek, the only disciple in America of Master Chen Bing, the direct descendant of its creator Chen Wangting. Master Bosco Baek teaches the authentic Chen Jia Gou (Chen Village) system and is a most knowledgeable and skillful teacher with precise attention to the details of alignment and structure that will challenge the most athletic and benefit the absolute beginner.

Classes starting Sunday January 19 in Santa Monica.
