Practice Tai Chi with Paul Chek and the CHEK Faculty!
You may be stuck at home right now, but you can move, reduce your stress, calm your mind AND boost your immune response all at the same time. Let Paul and the CHEK Faculty show you how.
What Is a Tai Chi Gong?
The T’ai Chi Ruler is a simplified and accessible version of the traditional practice of T’ai Chi. As a dynamic meditation, it is ideal for more athletic types who’d like to take their first taste of meditative practice.
Meditation, or mindfulness, has been shown by many published research studies to improve things such as, stress management, sleep patterns, digestion, blood pressure, balance, concentration – and even persistent pain.
The beauty of the T’ai Chi ruler is that it is so easy to learn, you can master it very quickly and then the next step is to commit to completing a Gong.
A T’ai Chi Gong (or Qi Gong) is a 100-day commitment to engage in the T’ai Chi discipline daily, without skipping a day. If you miss a day, the rule is you have to start again at day 1! This practice teaches dedication, focus and commitment and is a wonderful way to develop a sense of connection to the greater whole, intuition, relaxation and rejuvenation.
