The martial art Tai Chi is known as ’’meditation in movement’’. The practice promotes the constructive and curative work of the vital energy and amplifies the effects of it in the body health. With specific movements, the body, mind and spirit intertwine for relaxation and physical strengthening.
On Monday, 15th & 29th April, we have the honour of Carl Zimmerling, who practices this art for over 25 years, guiding the session.
The class is open for all levels and is meant, above all, as a way of sharing and promoting the collective and individual practice.
“As in meditation, here too, the path into this direction begins with the perception and exploration of our inner space. We get to know our energetic center, its weight and flexibility. We discover universal energies and laws that are available to us, in our body, when we pay them attention. The result of constantly repeated exercises, is an intimacy with the unity of body and mind.”
Some of the benefits of the practice of Tai Chi:
1. Improving strength, flexibility and balance
2. Improving peace of mind
3. Improving mental clarity and quality of life
4. Pain and stress reduction
5. Increase of body energy (Qi)
The class is held in Portuguese and/ or English/ German.
