Improve Balance, coordination, and flexibility. Learn how to relax the body and release tension. Develop awareness of life force energy and enhance inner flow. Improve posture and structural alignment. Reduce stress and increase wellness. Tai Chi offers all of this and more. Tai Chi is an internal martial art which encourages the flow of life force energy through a series of spiralling movements and various postures. The health benefits of Tai Chi are numerous and well documented, but the only way to know for sure is to try it for yourself! The First Class is Free. All levels welcome. Join a class and see for yourself the benefits. Learn traditional Chen Family Tai Chi taught in the traditional format which includes standing post meditation, silk reeling, and the 75 Movement Lao Jia Yi Lu form. My name's Colin and I've been practicing Chen Family Tai Chi for over a decade. The purpose of this training is to give you a solid foundation for your practice and perhaps show you a side of Tai Chi that you have not seen before. Bring some water with you and wear comfortable clothing and comfortable footwear. Generally flat soled training shoes are best for Tai Chi but not essential in the beginning. If you have any trouble finding us you can give me a call on[masked].
