Introduction to T'ai Chi Chih

T’ai Chi Chih (pronounced tie-chee-cha) is a practice of 19 movements completely focused on activating, circulating and balancing one’s vital energy (Chi). Learn more about it from Angela Calogero, an accredited teacher, at Bernardsville Public Library on Tuesday, February 10 at 7:00 pm. She will explain how T'ai Chi Chih is practiced softly and gently, requires no special athletic ability, and can be done from a seated position. It is often thought of as a moving meditation because of the calming effect on mind and emotions, and the release of tension throughout the body.

"T'ai Chi Chih can help with concerns about balance, coordination and other health issues," said Ms. Calogero, "All that is needed is a desire to access the body’s natural inclination to balance the energies of Yin and Yang. It is not a martial art, but rather an inner discipline." The full form is taught by an accredited teacher in eight weekly, 1¼-hour sessions. 

T’ai Chi Chih has been endorsed by The Arthritis Foundation, The Mayo Clinic and other reputable health organizations.

There is no charge to attend the program, but advance sign-up is requested. Register online at and follow the link from Adult Programs, or call the library at 908-766-0118 to sign up.
