Two Rivers Academy is pleased to announce a new Beginner Taiji Class offered weekly by Shoshanna Katzman on Fridays from 1-2pm. Classes are held outside at Red Bank Acupuncture Center in Shrewsbury weather permitting, otherwise on Zoom.
Taiji is a gentle, yet powerful Chinese way of movement that teaches one to live in harmony with nature. It is a meditation through movement, practiced with full relaxation of the body and focused mental concentration. This ancient exercise is also excellent for stress reduction and invigorates flow of qi (vital energy) and blood throughout the body.
Through daily practice, Taiji reconnects the mind to the body, the conscious to the subconscious, and the individual to their environment. It’s flowing patterns of movements are best performed slowly while integrating the physical and energetic aspects of being. With its circular movements, rhythmic breathing, and flowing postures, Taiji allows the full potential within each person to blossom.
Shoshanna Katzman has been a practitioner of Guang Ping Yang Style Taiji for fifty years and teaches the form in its original style as passed down by the Taiji ancients. For more information call or text 732.758.1800 or visit tworiversacademy.com.
