Our Intro to Tai Chi event was popular, so we decided to offer a weekly course.

When: Sundays from August 4 to October 20, 2024
(12 sessions) 

Tai chi, a shortened form of the Chinese martial art tai chi chuan, is a mind-body exercise first developed in China. Tai chi has been practiced for millennia because of its many health advantages, including mental and spiritual well-being.

Tai chi is low-impact and has slow, soft motions. This ancient technique involves moving continuously while focusing on breathing and meditating. As you progress through a sequence of poses, you concentrate your attention on your body, thoughts, and emotions. You take deep breaths.

When you practice tai chi, you should stand in a comfortable squatting stance. Squatting at different depths allows you to tailor the workout's challenge to your own needs. 

Duration: Each session is 45 minutes

Cost: Member: $120 and Non-Member: $360
(fee for each participant)
