Taoist Tai Chi Society® of the United States of America
The Taoist Tai Chi Society® of the USA is part of the International Taoist Tai Chi Society, a global volunteer organization with more than 500 locations in over 28 countries with more than 42,000 participants. The Society brings together people of different languages and cultures in a world-wide community. The society was established in the Florida Keys in 1998, but has been practiced internationally since 1969.
Taoist Tai Chi® internal arts of health include a gentle set of 108 movements that promote well-being for people of all ages and in all conditions. The training is intended to help the mind return to stillness, clarity and wisdom, and the body to a balanced, relaxed and healthy state.
Young or old, newly healthy or healing experience profound and life-changing improvement in their overall well-being. Taoist Tai Chi® internal arts and methods are distinguished at the physical level by stretching, full range of motion and the continuous turning of the waist and spine. The movements exercise the whole physiology; including the tendons, joints, connective tissue and internal organs. At the mental and spiritual level, they are a method of ‘taming the heart’ and developing an attitude of calm, compassion and reduced self-centeredness both during practice and in daily life.
All instructors and administrative personnel are volunteers. There are two locations in the Keys to practice. In Marathon at St. Columba Episcopal Church Parish Hall and in Key Largo at the Lion’s Club. New class sessions are beginning in Marathon on Tuesday, April 1 at 6:30 p.m. and in Key Largo on Thursday, April 2 at 9 a.m. 5:30 p.m.
