Tai Chi, a form of mind-body exercise, originated as a martial art in China. It utilizes slow, gentle movements along with deep breathing and relaxation to build strength and flexibility. The theory of Tai Chi is deeply rooted in the principles of Yin and Yang, a philosophy of complementary and interdependent opposites. The practice of Tai Chi emphasizes balance between movement and tranquility; between breath and relaxation.
These classes are a moving meditation and a powerful key to relaxation, reducing stress, increasing strength and concentration. The form of Tai Chi taught is from the Yang style. It is appropriate for those experiencing chronic pain or illness or anyone looking for a relaxing form of movement.
