About Tai Chi

Tai Chi (Taiji 太極拳) is a gentle, low-impact exercise suitable for students of any age and varying physical ability. It is a therapeutic exercise derived from Chinese martial arts, focusing on the circulation of Chi (Qi 氣), or "life energy" found within all living things. Sometimes called "moving meditation," millions around the world practice it daily as a gentle stress reducing exercise.

 

Practicing Tai Chi can:

  • Reduce Stress

  • Increase mobility, flexibility, and balance
