Tai Chi Classes
Tai chi is an ancient Chinese non-combative, martial art that embraces the body, mind and spirit. It provides one of the most effective exercises for health of mind and body. Often referred to as “moving meditation,” tai chi involves a series of slow, meditative body movements that are designed to promote inner peace, improve muscular strength and flexibility, relieve pain, improve circulation, increase bone density and address a number of chronic health conditions.
Benefits of tai chi
Tai chi can help to reduce stress and anxiety, creating a calm feeling of peaceful inner strength. It can help men and women of all ages and fitness levels. It has been shown to help manage a wide range of health conditions, including:
- Balance disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease

- Depression and anxiety
- Chronic pain
- Side effects of cancer treatment
What to expect when practicing tai chi
