Garuda Tibetan Taichi Studio
in Albuquerque, NM invites anyone with an interest in martial arts,
physical fitness and conditioning, moving meditation, and Eastern
philosophy to join us in a supportive atmosphere of individual
training for all levels.
Known around the world under
many names, (taichi, taiji, tai-chi and sometimes Qigong, qi-gong, Shaolin
boxing, etc), this form has many variants but only one original form
based on the movement of animals in nature. Garuda teaches the
oldest known form of tai chi which incorporates precise methods of
breathing, weight distribution, energy circulation, and fluidity. Master
Liu Siong (Count Willem Reeders) brought this teaching to the
west after training from an early age in China.
over six centuries ago, Tibetan Taichi is a scientific method of
physical and mental conditioning, consisting of a unique series of
fluid and synchronized movements performed in slow motion in
conjunction with a system of deep breathing. Breath is the basis of
Tibetan tai chi, as it is of life. Because this technique involves
no straining or jerking, but a slow progressive increase in effort,
it is suitable for anyone who wants to improve their health and
athletic performance, while increasing their resistance to injury.
Only patience and consistency matter. Your level of fitness
will not prevent you from beginning and can only improve with
properly and on a regular basis, Tibetan taichi increases energy and
flexibility, normalizes the metabolism, improves muscle tone, and is
an effective technique of stress management.
Tai-Chi consists of four phases and requires time to become
proficient in all of the movements. Since each error diminishes the
effectiveness of Taichi, the emphasis is on the correctness of each
movement. In other words, it is more beneficial to learn a single
move correctly than to learn a dozen movements superficially.
Garuda's classes are small enough to allow each student to progress
at their own rate.
