Welcome to Tai Chi With Lu
Where We Celebrate the Gift of Tai Chi
Lu Molberg, Sifu Master
Author of "Lead With Chi"
Tai Chi is an internal energy practice for health, strength, and relaxation.
We believe in the power and potential of chi energy within ourselves and throughout the universe.
We honor Pao Peter Lee, our lineage, who brought Tai Chi to the
Coachella Valley and taught with love and respect rather than a desire for fame or personal gain.

...is an ancient Chinese exercise that gathers, circulates, nurtures, directs, and releases vital life energy or chi. It is a tool for health preservation, self protection and mental calm, and is practiced slowly and deliberately with root, relaxation, and mental intention and focus.
As a passive martial art, Tai Chi is rooted in the basic values of all martial arts; respect for self, respect for others, respect for the opportunity and responsibility to learn, and respect for those who pass on the teaching.
Benefits of Tai Chi Practice
Some of the primary benefits of practice are seen in posture control, balance, overall strength, sensitivity and awareness, flexibility and agility, coordination and reaction time, and self confidence. The incidence of falls is lower in those who practice Tai Chi.
Research also indicates that regular Tai Chi practice can positively affect cardio-respiratory and immune function, memory, hypertension, quality of sleep, bone density, cancer side effects, organ function, asthma, multiple schlerosis, arthritis, anti-aging enzymes, and sex hormone levels.
Tai Chi Originated
...as a tool for health and longevity, but was also used for self protection. Its early origin can be traced back over one thousand years. The original thirteen-posture form is said to have developed in the Wu Dang Temple in the late 1300’s. Tai Chi later grew as distinct forms rooted in different Chinese families.
The Yang Family Form
...is the most practiced tai chi form world wide. It is attributed to Yang Lu Chan "The Unsurpassed" (1799-1872) who is purported to be the Father of the Yang family form.
