T’ai Chi is a martial art that originated in China and has now gained great popularity around the world. It is considered a gentle or internal martial art because its power derives from the use of energy (chi) rather than physical strength. It is a graceful slow moving meditative form of exercise that cultivates physical awareness and the flow of energy. Most people practice T’ai Chi primarily for relaxation and improved health with improved flexibility, leg strength, balance and ease in breathing. Focusing on movement helps us center in the face of life’s stresses and gives us a sense of peace and well being. This class is suitable for all ages. Attention will be given to ensure that students practice safely with proper alignment and position.
