Tai Chi Classes
Tai Chi is a martial art that combines gentle movements with breathing and mental focus to increase Qi flow through the body. Originally when Tai Chi was first created 300-500 years ago, the main goal of it was to lead the Qi to the hands and feet to increase power for martial purposes.
Tai Chi is still practiced today mainly for its healing effects on the body. Increasing the Qi flow through the body has very beneficial properties for people and helps with: arthritis, heart disease, cancer, improving longevity, increasing bone density, lowering blood pressure, helping with balance, and calming and focusing the mind are just a few.
