TAI CHI

Tai Chi Chuan-or “Grand Ultimate Fist” was originally created as an advanced form of martial arts, but is probably best known today for its phenomenal health benefits. Tai Chi’s gentle, flowing motions are simple and  natural, making the practice of tai chi a safe and healthful exercise. The practice of tai chi is very low impact making it a perfect discipline for both men and women of all ages. Tai chi practice involves intense concentration on your immediate activity with an emphasis on complete relaxation. This combination of the mind being focused on the body’s soft, fluid movements is one reason Tai Chi is oftenreferred to as “meditation in motion.”

 

A few of the benefits of tai chi include:

  • Stress reduction
  • Improved strength, flexibility and balance
  • Increased self-awareness and body sensitivity
  • Joint pain reduction
