What is Tai Chi?


Tai Chi is an ancient martial art form that originated from Qi Gong in China about 1200 A.D. It is a blend of slow moving martial art movements and qigong breathing techniques to balance the body, mind and spirit. It works with one's life force energy known as "Chi," the energy field that permeates the body. This energy field can become blocked by illness, stress, negative thought patterns and poor diet, etc.  Tai Chi helps to rejuvenate and balance this energy field. The Yang Style Tai Chi is characterized by smooth, flowing movements and is focused on health and well being.

          

Benefits of a regular Tai Chi and Qi Gong practice may include:

*Reduced Stress & Anxiety               *Tones & Strengthens Muscles

                *Greater Flexibility       *Improved Cognition         *Improved Balance                                    *Increased Energy & Stamina             *Heightened Focus & Awareness
