About Tai Chi
Tai chi is a self-healing system of slow, graceful exercises that combine movement, meditation and rhythmic breathing to improve the flow of chi (Universal Energy) which is thought to prevent illness and improve well-being. Research suggests that tai chi reduces stress, lower blood pressure and helps over all health by improving posture, balance, muscle tone, flexibility and strength.
Tai Chi is great for students of all ages and ability levels.
