Awakening Chi® develops energy, strength, balance, immunity, peace of mind, focus, and clarity. It incorporates Tai Chi and Qi Gong principles and consists of a series of simple gentle movements. Master Hancock created Awakening Chi® to facilitate a faster means for his students to become aware of and build the healing chi (energy) flow in their bodies. It is a powerful relaxation tool to relieve traumatic stress and an excellent tool to ground you for any challenge you are preparing for. (Chi: life force/universal energy or the vibration that animates life.)Awakening Chi® is an easy half-hour routine for adults seeking a way of alleviating stress, healing from injury or disease, gaining balance and strength. If your body tires easily while at work or play, Awakening Chi will improve your body dynamics thus increasing your energy and sense of enjoyment in life. It is also an excellent way to begin your study of Tai Chi.

"One of the reasons I decided to begin taking classes at Body Balance was because of the pain I was experiencing in my knees, hips, legs, and lower back. When I arrived at Body Balance Healing Arts, I was greeted warmly by Pat while he listened to why I wanted to take Tai Chi. In just one session with Pat where he taught me Awakening Chi exercises, I noticed significant relief in the pain I had been experiencing daily for several months. I felt the stiffness in my knees and back loosen and the tenderness in my hips lessen. The morning after my first Tai Chi class I just knew I had to continue with classes. The more I practiced Tai Chi and the more I attended classes, the stronger my body felt, the less pain I was in, and the more I noticed a greater sense of centeredness within myself both in class, and throughout my day. I would absolutely recommend classes at Body Balance Healing Arts to anyone struggling with physical pain and/or to anyone who is looking for greater centeredness, inner connectedness, and increased mind body spirit harmony." ~Clair
