Meditation in Motion

Meditation in Motion

Imagine yourself in a total state of relaxation, with all your worries drifting away. Imagine your mind and body fully balanced and at peace. ‘Aksobha’, as the name suggests, aims to promote this tranquillity and make this imagination a reality. We do this through the beautiful and intricate martial art of Tai Chi.

What is Tai Chi?

If you are looking for a way to attain this state, Tai Chi is for you. Initially developed for self-defence, it has evolved into a graceful form of exercise used for stress reduction and various other health conditions, from arthritis to diabetes. Often described as meditation in motion, tai chi promotes serenity through gentle, flowing movements accompanied by deep breathing. Here, you are the artist, your limbs, the brushes, and Tai Chi, the masterful artwork.

Tai Chi: a practice for all

Most martial arts often require high physical energy and fitness. Though these also require mental strength, Tai Chi is a practice that tests the mind more than the body. It is:
• Dependent not on your age but the agility of your mind It, therefore, is for all, regardless of age.
• Low impact; it exerts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it generally safe for all. Because tai chi is low impact, it may be especially suitable if you are an older adult who otherwise may not exercise.
• The breathing exercises, improved concentration, slow and gentle movements: in a world of millennials often struggling with stress and the problems of this generation, it is enormously beneficial.

Though not widely known in India, Tai Chi offers so much more than meets the eye.
It provides a multitude of advantages to those that practice it.

Art with a plethora of benefits

With so many more prominent martial arts and our yoga services,
you might ask yourself:

Why do they teach Tai Chi?

A simple answer to that would be its immense benefits.

  • Tai Chi reduces stress. Are you feeling anxious? Let the gentle movements clear your mind and help alleviate your tension.
  • It massively improves your concentration; an actual test of mental strength, Tai Chi ensures that those that practice it are immersed in the moment.
  • Almost all chronic conditions, including arthritis, heart disease and diabetes, can be prevented with this unconventional medicine.
  • Patience, tranquillity and inner balance: Tai Chi helps promote them all and keeps your mind at ease.
  • It increases bone strength immensely and thereby also prevents deadly osteoporosis.

Tai Chi at Aksobha

With the beauty that Tai Chi brings and its ability to challenge the mind, instructors must be proficient at the craft and have passed the mental strength tests it provides. Our instructor, Sruti Venkatesh, is a prime example of this.

A certified Tai Chi instructor, she has been trained under a prominent and distinguished Tai Chi school in Singapore. She has been practicing for the last six years in Singapore and Bangalore. She strongly believes in Tai Chi’s power to imbibe peace in its practitioners.

We are keen on helping others experience everything Tai Chi brings to an individual’s well-being. Through our classes, we hope to bring you the essence of Tai Chi: serenity and balance.
