The uses of T’ai Chi for quieting the body and the mind are legendary: “The body of a lumberjack, the suppleness of a child, the compassionate wisdom of a sage.” T’ai Chi training is open to anyone, regardless of age or condition.
Sifu Peter Kay has more than 35 years experience teaching the traditional Chinese art of T’ai Chi. He began a life-long study with Herman Kauz as his teacher and currently teaches T’ai Chi Form and Push Hands, as well as healing and meditative Ch’i Kung (Qigong) exercises.
T’ai Chi Form is taught in the tradition of Professor Cheng, Man-Ch’ing, and includes solo and/or interactive exercises, for health and meditation. Partner exercises (push hands training as taught by Herman Kauz) emphasize sensitivity and responsiveness: “4 ounces of pressure, yielding with return.”
Teaching is though Group Seminar Training, university credit courses at Piedmont Community College, and classes at the Person County Senior Center. Private lessons and Ch’i Kung therapy sessions are also available.
