Qigong/Tai-Chi & Health - Beginners Class
 

 

At any age you can learn and become proficient in Tai-Chi, an ancient form of meditative exercise originated in China.  Tai-Chi is recognized by slow and energizing movements practiced by millions of people around the world to improve and maintain good health. Classes begin with Qigong to improve the body’s energy flow by using the mind to guide our thinking as we move from one point to the next point. Gentle breathing is always at the core of Qigong and Tai-Chi bringing relaxation as you move from one movement to the next.  Experience this powerful exercise, and improve balance, overall bodily wellness with an uplifting feeling of spiritual joy.
