We recommend Tai chi to anyone interested in a rejuvenating their health!


Tai Chi is an exercise that anyone can learn. It originated in China hundreds of years ago and is well-known among the Chinese for improving health and enhancing longevity. In class you will learn the series of slow Tai Chi movements that will improve flexibility, balance, body awareness, and relieve stress. The movements are taught one at a time and explained in detail. Age or physical condition are not a factor in learning Tai Chi and no special clothing, shoes, or equipment are needed. Please wear clothes you are comfortable moving in when you come to class. The one hour class emphasizes the health aspects of the art. Students learn the three sections of the Tai chi form, a set of prearranged movements, over a period of approximately eight months. They also learn several sets of movements practiced with a partner known as Tui shou or "Push Hands".
