Classic Tai Chi

Monthly Cost: $10 for members

 Tai Chi is completed in chairs and/or standing up.

 There are three aspects of Tai Chi: Health, Meditation, and Martial Arts. Tai Chi used for health purposes concentrates on our internal energy and breath. Practicing the movements using correct body alignments improves our mental alertness, balance, coordination and strength.  Tai Chi as a martial art concentrates on using your opponent’s movements and center of gravity to effectively redirect the attack with appropriate responses. Classical Tai Chi practice shows favorable effects on the following chronic conditions: stroke, heart failure, high blood pressure, heart attacks, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, fibromyalgia, arthritis and compromised immune systems.
