Individual Practice
Change

Change

When I started Taoist Tai Chi® practice, there were many things that I had a hard time doing physically without pain; getting dressed, putting my socks on, sitting, getting up, taking long walks … These seemingly small movements affected the quality of my life and even my attitude towards life. I never thought Taoist Tai Chi® arts […]
Self Practice

Self Practice

I have gained a deeper understanding of the organization and Master Moy’s teachings after attending the virtual sessions for the last two years. A simple message has guided us: self practice. Although the message is simple, to carry it out requires diligent practice. When I first started to practice on my own, it was hard […]
Patience

Patience

In Taoist Tai Chi® practice, I have learned that I need to be patient, that things happen when it’s time and that there’s no point in forcing them. Frustrations and worries arise when I want too much, when I want things to happen quickly and in my own way. There is no point in pulling on […]
Breaking Through

Breaking Through

By practicing Mr. Moy’s teachings of constancy and patience, something in me that has been stuck is finally beginning to move. When I was young in a colder climate, I loved to watch the water flowing under ice in the ditches in spring, just before the full melt. That’s the feeling that has come as a […]
Trust Letting Go

Trust Letting Go

During my individual practice, I have been learning to let go – let go of what? At first it was to let go of weight, to let myself settle, to let myself drop until it was finished. I realized, as the weeks and months went by, that letting go is so much more. It is […]
Reverence

Reverence

Practicing Taoist Tai Chi® arts helps me treat everyone and everything in my life with respect, thoughtfulness and gratitude. Whenever I’m having a difficult time, I turn to my Taoist Tai Chi® practice. Almost immediately I start to feel reverence again towards the people around me, my home, my garden, my cooking. ~Galina
Staying social

Staying social

Virtual meetings help me stay socially active, they help me break through the isolation. Even though I don’t speak, I have the opportunity to see others. Listening to their  stories and teachings helps me to feel better by offering me comfort. It brings a sense of relief and joy.
World Stroke Day

World Stroke Day

14 years ago I had 9 strokes.  I couldn’t stand, walk, talk, see or eat.  I had to start all over again. My Taoist Tai Chi®  practice has helped me to build balance and strength, to lose fear and to do all the functions of life. It has given me my life back!~ Sasha
Helps with stress, better sleep.

Helps with stress, better sleep.

I had high stress, high anxiety, lots of pain, and very poor sleep. I was a mess and my lifestyle was not healthy. Almost by chance I tried out a Taoist Tai ChiⓇ arts class. I noticed very soon after that my anxiety was more manageable and my pain started to go away so I could sleep […]
Forever Young

Forever Young

I am 89 years old. For me, Taoist Tai Chi® arts are a moving meditation that provide me everything I need to feel good. I can do this for myself!  When I practice opening the chest and extending the spine, I like to feel what is going on inside my body. The feeling is very important to […]
