Stress And Concentration Problems At Work?

Try Our T'ai Chi At Work Program

Crooked River T'ai Chi Ch'uan Center can bring T'ai Chi Ch'uan classes directly to your place of business with our T'ai Chi At Work exercise program. Here are a few reasons to explain how T'ai Chi At Work will benefit your emplyees:

  • When it comes to aerobic exercise, many people resist joining a group at work because they don't want to get sweaty or have to bring a change of clothing. T'ai Chi at Work provides aerobic conditioning without the need to change out of your work clothes.
  • Students report feeling energized and refreshed after T'ai Chi Ch'uan class.
  • No fancy or expensive equipment is needed to practice T'ai Chi Ch'uan at home or at work.
  • T'ai Chi Ch'uan requires only about six feet in any direction to practice.
  • T'ai Chi Ch'uan can be performed by almost anyone of any ability or physical limitation.
  • Not everyone likes energetic exercise that requires running, jumping up and down, or exercise that pushes a person to fatigue and heavy breathing.
  • Like Yoga, T'ai Chi Ch'uan is an "internal" mind-body practice with an emphasis on proper breathing - a skill that once learned, can reduce stress in a matter of minutes!
  • Movements during T'ai Chi Ch'uan practice differ from other types of exercise in several respects: movements are mostly circular and never forced, the muscles are relaxed rather than tensed, the joints are not fully extended and connective tissues are not stretched.
  • "T'ai Chi Ch'uan can be easily adapted for anyone - from the most fit, to people confined to wheelchairs or recovering from surgery." (Harvard Health Publications, Harvard Medical School, 2009)

Corporate T'ai Chi Ch'uan Classes

Crooked River T'ai Chi Ch'uan Center offers corporate classes to companies with health and wellness programs for their employees to help address the rising cost of medical health insurance. Although not a substitute for traditional medical care, T'ai Chi Ch'uan is generally safe for people of all ages and levels of fitness.

A Good Direction for a Healthier Lifestyle and a Satisfying Life

Dr. Michael Roizen, wellness chief of the Cleveland Clinic™, suggest that almost all of the nation's health problems are easily reversible if people can be convinced to do just four things: eat better, exercise, stop smoking, and reduce their stress levels (Crains Cleveland Business®, Jan. 2011). The meditative benefits of T'ai Chi Ch'uan practice can provide the necessary motivation to accomplish a more thoughtful and positive approach to self-care in these difficult areas.

The Mayo Clinic writes: Despite its ancient history, T'ai Chi has been studied scientifically only in recent years. And that research is suggesting that T'ai Chi may offer numerous other benefits beyond stress reduction, including: reducing anxiety and depression, improving balance and coordination, reducing the number of falls, improving sleep quality, slowing bone loss in women after menopause, lowering blood pressure, improving cardiovascular fitness, and relieving chronic pain. (Mayo Clinic, Stress Management, "T'ai Chi: Improved Stress Reduction, Balance, Agility for All" 2009).

And finally, Peter Wayne, assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and director of the T'ai Chi and Mind-Body Research Program at Harvard Medical School's Osher Research Center states, "A growing body of carefully conducted research is building a compelling case for T'ai chi as an adjunct to standard medical treatment for the prevention and rehabilitation of many conditions commonly associated with age". (Harvard Health Publications, Harvard Medical School, 2009).
