Home-style Tai Chi

    Wake up early on Sunday and discover the power of an early morning personal practice!

    This class combines the wise teachings of Hal Elrod’s book Miracle Morning with a simple, elegant Tai Chi practice for beginners.

    This Tai Chi and stretch class can kickstart a powerful personal growth routine by teaching the important skills of going slowly and relaxing while in motion. Tai Chi is an excellent morning practice that can help build a positive mindset, boosts confidence, and sets the stage for long-term success in all your personal and professional endeavors.

    It is very important for long-term health and clarity to set aside time to develop a daily morning ritual of personal practices that help you build a spacious, creative, and resiliant mind.

    Through slow, deliberate movements and deep easy breathing, Tai Chi promotes relaxation, flexibility, and balance. Its gentle, low-impact nature makes it suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels. Tai Chi also cultivates mental clarity and emotional resilience, fostering a sense of inner peace and harmony.

    Its meditative aspects encourage mindfulness and self-awareness, providing us with excellent tools to manage anxiety, improve concentration, and cultivate a deep sense of connection with oneself and our environment.

    Relaxing while in motion equals power and precision. It is commonly known that tai chi is a slow form of studying kung fu martial arts. But I have discovered that studying tai chi improves my accuracy and clarity of any activity I do. Tai Chi teaches us how to learn.

    This ancient personal practice is a philosophy and way of moving through the world that cultivates peace, spaciousness, and alert attention. Tai Chi is much more than the study of specific martial arts maneuvers.

    This class will bring a creative, modern twist to the ancient traditions of this powerful preventative medicine practice. Tai Chi is for everyone.

    This fundamentals class will guide you through mind-body exercises that combine slow, graceful movements with restorative breathing. It is a gentle form of exercise that is suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels.

    A regular Tai Chi practice can:

    • Reduced stress and anxiety

    • Increased flexibility and range of motion

    • Reduced muscle and joint pain

    • Improved mental clarity and focus

    • Increased energy levels

     

    This class takes place in my backyard in Glendale, CA. It does not require any special equipment. Just wear lose comfortable cloths and bring a towel or a mat to work on grass.

    About the Instructor Jess Hagan

    Tai Chi Class in Glendale, CA

    Hi, I’m Jess. I am a black belt in Pa Kua Kung Fu. I believe it is important to keep Tai Chi accessable to beginners.

    I began studying martial arts in 2015. Along with a black belt in Pa Kua martial arts, I earned an instructor’s degree in Shadow Form Tai Chi, Chinese Archery, and Edged Weapons in 2019. I am also a certified Kundalini yoga instructor as well as a Family Constellations facilitator. I help people heal from invisible injuries and relocate personal power.

    In my years of studying Tai Chi, I have observed that the impressive athleticism of main stream Tai Chi can discourage people from giving the practice a try.  I believe it is important to keep Tai Chi accessable to beginners. I present the material in an informal way. No uniforms, no contracts, and no ranking system here. I leave it to every student to set their own goals and to know the pace that works best for them.  Tai Chi is for everyone wherever you may be and for any level of commitment.
