The perfect tonic for urban living..... 3/31/2008

Shaktis Elements is awesome. It is an oasis for Tai Qi, Yoga and Qi Gong students run by a professional, friendly team. There is a well stocked tea bar where students congregate before and after the varied timetable of classes. It does not take long before you feel you are surrounded by a great community of people drawn from all walks of city life, dedicated to learning "enlightenment " in one form or another. I found it through a friend 4 years ago and have found it a great tonic to the crazy LA bustle. I went to a Tai Qi class hoping to find some way to relax, and what followed was quite profound. Under the guidance of the characterful Master Zi and his senior students I have laid down a foundation for a life-long practice, involving stretching exercises, flowing movements and mediation. I look forward to each class, as you learn some new aspect of the art and watch as your fellow students gently progress. Spines straighten, minds settle and people visibly become more grounded following their own inexorable path toward a better quality of life. I have seen with own eyes, people with seemingly insurmountable health issues from arthritis to depression healed. It's really very exciting to watch..... Also, outside teachers come from other cities to teach special one-off classes, the variety and quality of which, can be quite overwhelming. I cannot recommend this place enough. I can only hope that you are inspired after reading this article to try a class or two, drink a tea, talk to the students about their experience first hand and find how powerful all this strange martial art stuff really is..... more
