BREATHE LIFE TAI CHI has been serving Chicagoland communities for over 10 years. In recent times, my programing has expanded to focus on a broader reach of more communities I could bless through my custom designed programs for our current environment. Offerings still include In-Person training, but now with the option of Zoom. Many community establishments have combined their streaming experience of my instructional videos with one or two Zoom classes for their patrons each month. In-Person events are still available for your enjoyment. You can be online or In-Person for this incredibly social exercise program.
This special class at BREATHE LIFE TAI CHI is specifically created for the community including library programs, park districts, corporate sessions, nature and historical sites. You will have the option to train IN-PERSON, ZOOM or ON DEMAND STREAMING taught by certified instructor, Erica Bough AND have access to her video library to continue your practice on your own. The focus is on building strong Tai Chi principles and have a social environment, even online if you choose that direction. Adult class material is based on Qi Gong warm-up exercises and traditional forms such as Yang 24 and Sun 73. Forms explore principles including body structure of alignment and weight transference, and moving in a slow, continuous motion with gentle resistance. These principles contribute to strengthen deep stabilizer muscles resulting in decreased hip, back and knee pain, reduced anxiety and overall improved health.
