Garder le cap / Stay on track

Garder le cap / Stay on track

Tout comme l’eau qui trace son chemin, j’avance doucement, pas à pas en allant toujours de l’avant et en progressant avec les arts Tai Chi Taoïste® qui me montrent à garder le cap face aux obstacles.   Just like water running its course, I move slowly, step by step, always going forward, progressing through my practice […]
A New Body

A New Body

I am so thankful to Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism™ every day.  I had both of my hips replaced 10+ years ago and last summer I was up on the cottage roof laying down new shingles.  What I have discovered over the years is that the surgeries removed the damaged and painful surfaces, but […]
Keeping Balance at 93

Keeping Balance at 93

I am 93 years old.  Twelve years ago, I was having a difficult time dealing with the passing of my wife.  My daughter suggested I try tai chi.  She thought the exercise, and getting out and meeting new people, would help me deal with the grief. I found the Fung Loy Institute of Taoism Regional […]
Joie/Joy

L’entraînement aux arts Tai Chi Taoïste® me procure un bien-être physique et une agréable tranquillité. J’en ressens une douce et profonde joie.  Training in the Taoist Tai Chi® arts gives me physical well-being and a pleasant sense of  tranquility.

Reverence

Reverence

Practicing Taoist Tai Chi® arts helps me treat everyone and everything in my life with respect, thoughtfulness and gratitude. Whenever I’m having a difficult time, I turn to my Taoist Tai Chi® practice. Almost immediately I start to feel reverence again towards the people around me, my home, my garden, my cooking. ~Galina
Staying social

Staying social

Les  rencontres virtuelles m’aident à rester active au niveau social, elles m’aident à briser l’isolement. Même si je ne prends pas la parole, je vois les autres personnes, leurs témoignages et leurs enseignements me font du bien. J’ai alors un sentiment agréable d’apaisement, je ressens de la joie.   Virtual meetings help me stay socially […]
Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast Cancer Awareness

I’ve had breast cancer twice; once before I began practicing Taoist Tai Chi® arts and once after. The first time, I had difficulty with tightness and scarring, which made it difficult to move. When my cancer came back the second time, my recovery was much quicker because practicing the Taoist Tai Chi® arts kept me […]
Music and Jongs

Music and Jongs

I am a professional musician and Taoist Tai Chi® practice keeps me in shape physically. It helps me not get injured, keeps me elastic, and somehow keeps my body working even if I’m nervous. The hand movements are particularly good for my playing. This is all very important for me.  ~Oren
L’équilibre / Balance

L’équilibre / Balance

Parmi trois des grandes passions qui me procurent joie, quiétude et réconfort, les arts Tai Chi TaoïsteⓇ offrent quelque chose de supplémentaire. C’est la communauté de participants, l’ingrédient important qui m’apporte l’équilibre. Among the three great passions that give me joy, quietness and comfort, Taoist Tai ChiⓇ arts offer something extra. It is the community […]
Darkness and Light

Darkness and Light

Out of darkness comes light:  If the quarantine, lockdown or isolation due to Covid-19 is the darkness, then the light is the cultivation and growth of my personal practice of the Taoist Tai ChiⓇ arts. While our in-person sessions are on hold, the continued urging by the leadership of Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism […]
Quietude

Quietude

J’ai besoin de quiétude, d’harmonie pour que les changements se produisent à l’intérieur de mon être. Mon corps se prédispose alors à recevoir de nouvelles consignes, de nouvelles directions, pour enregistrer le mouvement, la sensation, le changement intérieur.   I have calm and a feeling of harmony to allow changes to take place within me. […]
Working in Harmony

Working in Harmony

“When I’m playing, everything is working in harmony. Mind, body, music. Harmony and dissonance are so important in music. Taoist Tai Chi® practice has enriched my idea of harmony and everything working together. I can feel when it’s all coming together. » ~Oren
Joy in Music

Joy in Music

Before doing Taoist Tai Chi® arts I played the violin by deciding how I wanted the music to sound.  I added a lot of ornamentation on top of the melody, which didn’t always follow the underlying form.  The effort to make the music sound a certain way would often lead to neck and shoulder stiffness.
