Tai chi is based on the philosophy of Taoism, which suggests movement in harmony with nature, seeking the balance of opposites.

In tai chi, softness overcomes hardness as moving water can carve through rock, and strength and flexibility are balanced, as a tree stands strongly rooted while bending and flexing in the wind. Often referred to as the art of changing, tai chi suggests we change with ease, seeking balance in our lives.

This ancient exercise has been recognized for its numerous health benefits. Tai chi uses movement to relax and let go of tension. The slow, soft, gentle movements of Tai Chi develop balance, relaxation, and sensitivity. Tai Chi practice will calm the mind, strengthen the central nervous system, improve circulation, enhance joint flexibility, open the compression of the spine, lower blood pressure, and naturally improve posture.

The principles of tai chi teach not only a fluid and dynamic system of movement for health and self-defense, but also, when applied to daily life situations, provide a guide for appropriate action. Maximum effect is achieved with minimum effort. Understanding the principles of tai chi makes personal application in ones' life possible.

Peter Herman, a certified instructor of William CC Chen, teaches both beginner and advanced classes in the 60 Movements Form of Tai Chi Chuan, Refinement and Corrections, and Push Hands in group classes. Group classes are held Tuesday nights at the Concept School in Westtown, PA. (7 PM for beginner;8 PM for advanced)

Private lessons include Form, Form Refinement and Corrections, Push Hands, Sword Form, Fan Form and applications of Tai Chi Chuan.  Private classes are by appointment only.

Book references and video tapes are available for purchase to students in the class. They are offered to help with personal  home practice while learning the 60 Movements Form of Tai Chi Chuan from week to week.

Additional reading material will be given upon request of the student and discretion of the instructor.
