What you'll learn in this stretch class:

Tai-Sho Dharuma is an ancient traditional exercise regimen designed to balance the mind, body and spirit and give long lasting health. Experience a gentle yet rigorous practice that links stretching and flexing with postures, body conditioning and mindful breathing techniques. This powerfully nurturing experience results in profound feelings of confidence and relaxation. The goal is to harmonize a strong resilient body with an agile mind and soaring spirit.

According to legend, many centuries ago a Buddhist monk, traveled from India to China and taught a series of exercises to the students of the famed Shaolin Temple. This eventually evolved into Kung Fu which spread to Okinawa and became Karate.

In Tai-Sho Dharuma we work the body from the toes to the top of the head. The stretches, flexes, poses, dynamic movements and breathing exercises relax and strengthen muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints. It also includes several Chi Gung exercises to develop internal energy. As we age our connective tissues need extra attention. Keeping them supple is a key to physical health.

The strengthening component of the Tai-Sho Dharuma practice is a dynamic breathing exercise called Sanchin. Sanchin is done very slowly, similarly to Tai Chi, using isometric body movements coordinated with specific breathing techniques.

Our Karate is rooted in Tai-Sho Dharuma. Therefore, as a special bonus hidden within the practice, self-defense techniques will be explained during each class.
