Tai Chi is a Chinese martial art widely practiced globally because of its benefits in defense training and meditation. This mind-body practice is considered a graceful exercise that mostly appeals to the elderly by helping their overall physical and mental health. Because it is a low impact exercise, it puts minimal stress on the muscles and joints. Lessons primarily consist of a continuous flow of slow movements or postures coordinated with breathing techniques.

Enrollees in the class will be taught skills of proper breathing and the art of relaxation. The students will learn how to do the Tai Chi 18 Movement Qigong, Tai Chi for Arthritis (Sun style), Tai Chi for Diabetes (combined Sun and Yang style), Yang 10, Yang 16, and Yang 24 style. Throughout the course, they will discover how to concentrate and visualize as instructed, while improving their balance, strength, and flexibility. More than that, through proper breathing techniques and continuous practice, Tai Chi can help develop their Chi – the energy that flows through them that is essential to their health.
