Courses - Tai Chi Quan

Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese form of martial arts. It is a mind-body, self-healing system that uses movement, meditation, and breathing to improve health and well being.

According to an article published by Harvard Health Publications, Tai Chi improves muscle strength, flexibility, balance, and aerobic conditioning. It also indicates that Tai Chi is helpful for medical conditions including arthritis, low bone density, breast cancer, heart disease, heart failure, hypertension, Parkinson's disease, sleep problems, and stroke.

Tai Chi involves gentle and relaxing exercises with mental focus that develop inner peace and comfort. Tai Chi can benefit men and women of any age and health. Tai Chi is also recognized as a method to reduce stress that can provide the same cardiovascular benefits as moderate exercise such as downhill skiing or jogging, but without the same risk of injury or impact on the joints.

We introduce basic Tai Chi exercises gradually and systematically. Material is introduced starting from elementary skills and progressing gradually toward advanced Tai Chi forms with the option to learn special styles such as the Tai Chi sword. Students can learn and progress at their own pace, and we happily accommodate any special needs you may have as we offer training in all aspects and levels of Tai Chi.
