What is Tai Chi?

Tai Chi is a mind-body exercise from China. It has it’s roots in martial arts, philosophy and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is centuries old but still relevant to today’s aches and pains. More and more seniors are doing Tai Chi to improve their health and reduce their risk of falling but not all programs are appropriate for seniors. That is why we designed our Senior Friendly & Senior Safe progressive program. It’s easy to get started and fun.

The Tai Chi forms are slow, gentle choreographed movements that gracefully flow from one to the next like a dance. It is important to learn from a certified, experienced instructor. Our instructors have extensive backgrounds and training to guide you through the learning process.

Many scientific studies have demonstrated multiple health benefits with regular practice. Our Tai Chi program can be added to your current exercise program or as a total healthy lifestyle approach. It can also be useful for rehabilitation after an injury or surgery.

Always consult your doctor before beginning a new exercise program.
