Exercise for the body and a study in concentration for the mind
Tai = big or great. Chi = ultimate energy. Tai Chi is an ancient form of Chinese exercise consisting of slow, beautiful, relaxed movements that develop a sense of balance and harmony between mind and body. Say goodbye to sweating, puffing and panting and say hello to feeling cool, calm, refreshed and energized. Our instructors are extensively trained in the martial arts. This is exercise for the body and a study in concentration for the mind. Participants learn the "how" and the "why" behind each movement.
