Tai Chi for Health and Balance   

Class Overview

Tai Chi is a health sustaining exercise and a tool for improved body awareness. Practiced by the elderly for balance and circulation and the young for relaxation and martial arts, it is a wonderful holistic activity for all ages.

During this class, you'll learn:

  • the Yang Tai Chi short form, which is comprised of 35 individual movements
  • Chi Kung, a warm-up exercise and relaxation activity with 18 movements
  • elements of Chinese Medical Philosophy, such as Yin/Yang theory and Five Elements transformation
  • the basics of Taoist philosophy

We'll focus on learning the entire Yang short form, and you'll receive guidance in developing your own regular practice at home.
