Tai Chi

Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese tradition that is practiced as a graceful form of exercise. Originally developed as self-defense, Tai Chi has evolved into a form of exercise used for stress reduction and offers calming emotional and health benefits. It involves a series of movements centered around balance, performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing. Tai Chi is designed to improve quality of life for people of all ages.
