Tai Chi Chuan
A mentally and physically healing class consisting of Chi Gong, literally translated “Life Energy Cultivation” and Tai Chi Chuan translated “Harmonized Energy” or “The Supreme Ultimate”. Both are holistic systems of coordinated body postures and movements, breathing and meditation, used in the belief that it promotes health, spirituality, and non-fighting martial arts training. With roots in Chinese medicine, philosophy, and martial arts, they are traditionally viewed as practices to cultivate and balance qi (chi), translated as “life energy”. This class is offered three times a week in beginner, mixed level and intermediate/advanced level focused formats, however all three classes remain open to students at varying levels of experience and skill. Join us and experience the many benefits!
