Why Living Taiji?

Traditionally, taiji has been taught in it’s entirety only to a select few disciples. For centuries, in an uncertain political climate, this practice made sense. It is our belief that times have changed, and that the current global society is in need of much of what taiji has to offer. Yet, despite the growing popularity of taiji, very little of the most beneficial aspects of taiji are available to the public. At the very least, the repetition of a taiji form is a beneficial form of mind-body exercise. At its very best, taiji is a method of training one’s entire being to harmonize and unify with the environment in which it is immersed. We believe that the time has come to offer the full spectrum of taiji in a simple & straightforward manner, training those who attend our courses in the heights as well as the depths of taijiquan. Graduates of our programs will know taiji as essentially a living, breathing, practice.
