What is Tai Chi?
Tai Chi Chuan (its long formal name) translates as “Supreme Ultimate Fist.” For students enjoying this ancient Asian exercise, it simply means to reach the highest with your optimal power. That may sound very challenging, but what a wonderful, no nonsense goal! The exercise is a sequence of steps culled from nature’s best movements to awaken the Qi — “intrinsic energy” in you. Our bodies have not changed that much over the centuries, but our connection to that vital force has. It has diminished, and so unnecessarily.

Because the exercise has been viewed as “esoteric” – something specialized or foreign – by the Western World, Tai Chi Chuan has remained an untapped source of health for several years until recently. Mixed into the various martial artists, it may have been an ancient Chinese secret, but the most obvious question should be: “Why are MILLIONS practicing it? And for centuries?” If you are still unsure about whether Tai Chi is for you, check out the popular misconceptions that has kept many from exploring its great benefits.

  1. I enjoyed the demonstration you gave at the Belmont Library last week. You looked and sounded familar to me. I may be mistaken but I belive you have done toastmasters. Am I correct? If am I enjoyed listening you when you gave a test at one of the big toastmaster contests. If I am wrong I apologize. You definitely know your Taichi.

  2. Elliote, is the right person for learning Tai-Chi. She is a very caring person, her energy is very peacefull, her smile say a lot about her. Her knowledge about Tai-Chi and other energy works make her like an Angel when comes to find ways of relaxation and health. I strongly suggest to take clases from Elliote, I know her for so many years and she is a great person to be with.
    Tai-chi is great way to find that balance within our selfs.
