Walking on Air: An Introduction to T’ai Chi
Mar 2 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

 

T’ai Chi is a sequence of slow motion, flowing steps, which originated in China. It is movement for health. The soft steps and gestures of T’ai Chi, and its companion Chi Kung (“breathing skill”), are designed to stimulate a healthy flow of blood and energy around the body – keeping the joints lubricated, the muscles elastic, and the mind refreshed and uplifted. Because the movements are so gentle, they can be performed by adults of all ages. T’ai Chi is good for the breath, for balance, and for a general feeling of calm and wellbeing. Come and try it: it’s a peaceful and lovely thing!
