In response to the many changes Humankind is going through, we cannot look away from the decline in Health and Wellness and it's relationship to the seeming benefits of “civilized lifestyle.” While there are many new, creative and wondrous advancements that have come from our evolution and development as a species, we cannot over-look what we have over-looked along the way. Creativity has a strange way of distracting us from common sense, as we revel in the joy of many expressions.
In the world of Tai Chi, there are many approaches towards instruction. One of our dreams is to have different levels of service and styles of classes to match your interest and personal development needs. Please read through our class options (frameworks) below, and then use the Class Finder to find a class near you.
When we think of improving our own Health and Wellness, we often have the perspective that has been given to us by the media, in other word there is more to consider than is socially/culturally recognized. For most of us, we are growing our understanding as more is being exposed due to the availability of the Internet. Still, marketing and advertising has learned to mask itself as “source information”, and while some of this is accurate, much of it is aimed at personal or corporate gain.
At the risk of stating the obvious, we must consider that 'knowing the problem and challenges” in Health & Wellness, at the Local/Regional/National/Global levels, only identifies the condition. Making large scale “course changes” requires a foundation that is free of agendas that prioritize financial gain as the defining guiding factor. Programs that face large scale changes are characteristically met with resistance during the initial development, for as we all know “We are creatures of habit” and commonly reject change in the inception phase.
Transformation Arts is a Health and Wellness, Empowerment, Natural Leadership refinement self-study program. We understand that large scale impact and proof of concept starts from a point, and grows exponentially when societal patterns reveal growing imbalances and can be recognized as opportunities in search of alignment; the success of local public programs can re-structure standards, re-define lowest common-denominator inter-actions and self-accountability in public service programs , and be reproduced at regional, national and global levels.
Transformation Art is a 30 yr. evolving mind/body experiential progressive educational training that began in early 1980. Over the years, the name has changed with respect to program and curriculum emphasis and instructor’s influence , having it humble beginnings in Martial Arts training and self-health care as it related to injury and illness and on-going Health and Fitness.
Transformation Arts is a formal Internal Arts passing lineage tradition that shoulders socially responsive action in the return, creation and education of self-health care practices and oral/written instruction of lineage Tai Chi/QiGong and Yoga. Actively engaged in Health Care Reform, Transformation Arts reflects, adapts and considers time-tested and global best practice standards. The Lineage uses the commonalities of Human-Shared Qualities, practical application of time-tested training and transformed individual results and science-based research as the measure.
Transformation Arts envisions a formal structure for Self Health Care that embraces the relationship and connection of individual whole health of the mind/body/spirit, the shift in community/social standards that reflects self health care in our inter-personal relationships and the awareness of our actions and impact on shared environments.
