Tai Chi - Fundamentals

  • This program is not currently being offered in 2019/20.

Originally founded as a martial art, Tai Chi has evolved into an aerobic mind-body fitness exercise of
physical movements paced by slow diaphragmatic (abdominal) breathing. Tai Chi’s
breath-coordinated movements, dynamic balance & weight-shifting transitions imbue a
sensorium of “mindfulness-in-motion”. The first 10 TC forms of the internationally standardized 24-
forms simplified Yang style Tai Chi will be coached in our 10-week program. TC improves balance, flexibility, lower extremity muscle strength, mental focus & facilitates relaxation.
