An ancient art form sometimes described as ‘meditation with movement’, Tai Chi has been shown to promote vibrant mental and physical health in people who practice regularly. Young and old alike benefit from Tai Chi's slow, flowing body movements that combine concentration, balance, and awareness.
During a special weekend Tai Chi Retreat
to be held in Ubud, Bali on January 28-29, 2012, at the Komaneka Resort
on Jalan Monkey Forest, participants will learn how this ancient exercise and meditative practice can be used to support mind-body health. Attendees will learn five body-loosening methods and a ten-movement short form that can be easily mastered by beginners and practiced in just a few minutes every day. Special emphasis is given to making Tai Chi
part of a naturally healthy lifestyle.
