Chen tai chi will boost athletic skills in your 20s and 30s, by improving focus. In your 40s and 50s it will reduce stress caused by work and hectic schedules.
In your 60s, 70s, 80s and beyond tai chi’s restorative powers will help you age more gracefully and function at a higher level than those who don’t practice it.

Chen strengthens joint ligaments to grant greater flexibility while increasing the bone mass density of the pelvis in order to give far greater stability for the hip. This is what attending my classes or private lessons achieves. Regarding cardiovascular improvements, Chen tends to vary postures in all its forms between fast and slow; although always in a continuous flow. This is the distinguishing characteristic of Chen; as the logic behind its strategy is that movement is never boring, nor becomes monotonous. They change. Each form obeys a different rhythm and the rhythm in each form is unique, much as would be in poetry. The result of Chen practice is greater lung volume plus stability in the beating of the heart. If longevity is your goal; sign up for Chen classes and for Chen lessons!

I look forward to Tai Chi class every week; I started earlier this year and like the combination of exercise, meditation, mental agility, and martial arts.

I have been studying chi gong for many years and had an interest in expanding my experience by studying tai chi chuan as well. But over the years I never found a good match with the teachers I tried. As the saying goes, ‘when a student is ready, a teacher will come’. I started attending Berit’s class. I also see Bérit on a one to one basis. The classes and private lessons, for me, make an excellent combination for learning tai chi chuan.

Great emphasis is given to proper posture and fluid body movement and balance. These are essential in this art and also play an important role in our overall health. I personally benefit from the assistance it gives me in maintaining proper back (spinal) structure.

I have taken Berit Schumann’s classes for over a year now and I have noticed a real improvement to my general well-being, particularly with my joints, balance and stamina. Berit is a dedicated teacher, who focuses on each of her students and their individual progress, and is very knowledgeable about Chen Tai Chi. Every week, I am looking forward to my class with her as a precious me-time. And in the future, I am considering taking one of Berit’s seminars abroad.

I have been taking lessons with Bérit for almost two years. I have found my balance has improved, my back doesn’t hurt me as it used to, and I have lost weight and tightened my muscles in my core. Bérit is an experienced teacher who encourages her students and let’s everyone work at their own pace. The studio the class uses is a big, clean room outside of Peekskill and the other students are very friendly and non-competitive. I would recommend this class to anyone looking for an effective way to become more healthy.
