What is the point of a Nobel Prize?

Well, it is too honor the contribution of the folks who receive the prize. But it is also to apply what has been learned to our daily lives – and thereby enrich those lives – or that might be one point, anyway.

So think about this year’s Nobel prize in terms of what it means to do all the things that people do that messes with their circadian rhythms – because it is profoundly impactful to their health and well fair.

Which is more difficult to come up with?

This morning I was told a story about a woman who will be having heart surgery next week. It will cost  in the neighborhood of $100,000 dollars.

All I could think about afterwards was how much JuicePlus+ $100,000 would buy.

When people choose not to take JuicePlus+ they usually mention price as a big part of the reason: too hard to come up with a couple of dollars a day for whole food in capsules to cover the serving of fruits and vegetables that they do not, can not, or will not get in their daily diet.

Answer:  You don’t get fresh ripe raspberries until September the following year! But they are amazing.

Course Description:

Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese system of exercise, and self-defense, based on the principles of stillness overcoming motion, and softness overcoming hardness. It teaches (1) how to breath, so you can relax and manage stress, (2) how to align yourself to relate to gravity and other forces, (3) how to move in a way that is safe and strong, and (4) how to be sensitive and aware. This Class will focus on teaching Tai Chi principles by learning part of the Long Round Hand Form, and three basic, foundational, Push Hands drills.

Course Objectives:

  1. Learn the beginning of the Long Round Hand Form (Styles 1- 17)
  2. Demonstrate knowledge of basic Tai Chi terminology
  3. Describe and demonstrate both Front and Back Stance
  4. Describe and demonstrate elementary Push Hands (e.g., 7-Star Step)
  5. Learn the 5 Components or “Five Pillars” of Tai Chi

Clothing: Street clothes are fine, loose enough so that you can move, or gym clothes. Flat-soled shoes are preferred for balance purposes. Wear shoes that will not mark up the floor.

Class Policies:

  1. Arrive on time
  2. Clean is good – so is trimmed nails and little or no jewelry
  3. Do not eat or drink too much before class, but do not come on an empty stomach
  4. Stay hydrated

Course Outline:

  1. Warm ups

  3. Beginning of the Long Round Hand Form
  4. Push Hands: Fixed Step (Single Hand & 4 Directions) and 7-Star Moving Step
  5. Discuss functional aspects of Tai Chi (e.g., self-defense applications, stress management)

Evaluation:

  1. Letter grades are used
  2. ATTENDANCE is required
  3. If you are late, or absent unexcused, your grade will be lowered:

 

9- 10             classes attended = A

6-7                classes attended = C

Less than 6 classes attended = FAILING Grade!!!

 

 

A PASS- FAIL formatted make-up test will be offered on week 8 or 9, which will raise your Grade one level.
