Invest in your health, try Tai Chi
Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese exercise for health. Originated in the 11th century by Chang San-feng, a Taoist sage, the exercise consists of graceful and slow movements that relax and strengthen both body and mind.
The Taoist form of Tai Chi that we practice was introduced to North America by Master Moy Lin-Shin, a Taoist master who studied the Taoist arts of health and longevity. By combining the theory and practice of the Taoist internal arts of health, Taoist meditation, and traditional Chinese medicine, Master Moy developed a form of Tai Chi that gives special emphasis to restoring and maintaining a state of natural health and well-being. Tai Chi can assist in integrating the mind and body, leading toward harmony between ourselves and the universe.
It is the mission of the Michigan Tai Chi Association to carry on the direction of our late Sifu Taoist Master Moy Lin-Shin. The Michigan Tai Chi Association remains a charitable foundation. Neither the directors, officers, nor the instructors are paid for their services. All suggested donations and fees go toward supporting, maintaining and expanding the organization, and preserving the quality of instruction.
Benefits of Tai Chi practice include:
Improved balance and coordination
Increase in bone density
Improved muscle strength
Increased energy, stamina and agility
