Learn the flowing, graceful movements of Tai chi chuan. Tai chi has shown to reduce blood pressure, improve balance and even build brain size!

Thursdays, 11 am - 12 noon - Mixed level Tai Chi, open to beginners

Join us in a Qigong (pronounced “Chee Gung”) class consisting of simple stretching, range of motion, mindful movements, breathing exercises and a brief stress reducing meditation. Self healing techniques and key acupressure points are included. Qigong is easier than Tai Chi Chuan because there are no linked movements to memorize in this style. Each exercise is easy to do and not strenuous. Qigong trains your mind as well as your body; relieving stress while building balanced energy.
