Tai Chi Chuan

Tai Chi Chuan is an ancient Chinese healing art, it is augmented by the fact that it is also a moving meditation.  This combination helps one’s body heal itself.  The slowly performed coordinated flowing movements facilitate the circulation of blood and energy (chi) and also create better overall balance and flexibility.  In ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine, the focus is to help prevent disease through practices such as Tai Chi Chuan, meditation, and Chi Kung, all of which are taught in these classes.
