Tai Chi

Tai Chi In-Person

Tai Chi helps with flexability and balance.  It is also a gentle way to reduce stress and anxiety.  Led by Jody Rubel.

Jody Rubel graduated Magna Cum Laude in Anthropology from Brandeis University, before traveling the world, in order to immerse himself in distant cultures. In 2007 at the One Drop Monastery in Washington State, he was introduced to Tai Chi and learned the principal of Non-Doing (ie. moving the body without a mover.)  Since then he has studied the Yang 37 posture short form, sword, sensing hands and Dai Lu.   He continues to seeking ways to understand and convey the beautiful logic and natural physics of the form while honoring the healing, relaxing, mental focus, internal strength building, Chi (energy) flow and communal bonding that naturally takes place in a Tai Chi practice.  In the words of his teacher Wolfe Lowenthal, (whose teachings are steeped in the Tao) in Tai Chi  “There are no secrets,”  only mysteries we unfold together.
