Ralph Somack practicing Pa KuaNew Seated Tai Chi Class Beginning January 3rd with Ralph Somack at the BORP Fitness Studio
Wednesdays 10:45-11:45 am
 Instructor: Ralph Somack
In this class, we will practice selected movements derived from the internal Chinese Martial Arts consisting mainly of Quang Ping Yang and Sun style Tai Chi and Ba Gua (Pa Kua). Tai Chi uses slow circular movements as a training aid to develop sensitivity and body alignment. Ba Gua emphases spiral movement energy likened to a “dragon soaring through the clouds”. Both disciplines use movements initiated by the “core” muscle groups to generate force. Tai Chi and Ba Gua are examples of moving meditation as well as sophisticated methods of building and applying refined power and integrating the mind, body, and spirit
