Tai Chi Gong is designed to help you relieve stress, increase flexibility, improve balance, strengthen and tone muscles, and quiet the mind. Through gentle movements and meditative breathing, the natural healing rhythms of the body are reestablished.
“I had been looking for a good tai chi instructor. I found this with Sifu Amy Erez. Her class is fun. Also, her manner of teaching is not stressful. She shows you what the postures mean or what they are used for. Her Qigong is good and very relaxing. I feel very comfortable when practicing the postures. After the class I feel calm.” Donald Saindon
“I had been looking into Tai Chi as a way to help me with my balance, when I found Amy’s class. And yes, Tai Chi has helped my balance. However, what I thought was going to be learning a set of rote movements, turned into something much more. Amy is a calm and relaxed teacher – who stresses well being.
Jon Finch, a fellow student summed up Tai Chi better than I ever could: “The days that I least feel like going to Tai Chi – are the days that I benefit the most from Tai Chi.”
Amy calls Tai Chi a practice – which I interpret to mean a lifelong learning process. I’m still learning the ‘rote’ movements – but there is always something new to learn about the moves I already know.” Bryce Ikeda
“What I like about Tai Chi is that it is a moving meditation. For me that’s wonderful because at times it’s hard for my body to be still. My mind can be focusing on the movement and it’s meditative.
I enjoy experiencing the depth of the body moving and being with the breath. It centers me, calms me and brings me back from whatever scattered place I’m in. The practice continues to grow as I continue to grow. It’s not a stagnant process or form.
On a physical level, it’s something I can do when I’m in pain and discomfort. It will ease and shift that. It has become part of my pain management. I started out with such extreme limitations that it gave me a way to get moving again in a safe, self-controlled fashion. It gave me back mobility, strength and balance. All the things I’d lost because of my injury and condition.” Martha Scheer
