Learn the Basics of Tai Chi

Learn the Basics of Tai Chi

Join master Tai Chi instructor, Dr. Ming Wu, owner of the Wu Healing Center for a workshop on Saturday, September 12, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the West Hartford Town Hall and Conference Center. Ming Wu is a doctor of Chinese Medicine, a sixth-generation Chinese Herbalist and a Master Tai Chi and Qi Gong practitioner who has been teaching mind-body therapies for more than two decades.

During the workshop, Wu will break down basic Tai Chi movements into easy-to-understand components and will provide explanation on the health benefits of each. Among its many advantages, Tai Chi stretches the body, reduces pain in the back, neck and shoulders, massages the internal organs and fosters emotional relaxation.

“Even minimal practice of Tai Chi has been shown to reduce stress, decrease pain and fatigue and improve bone density,” says Wu. “It also helps thicken the brain's cortex, which can help protect against depression, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, all of which are associated with the thinning of the cortex.”
