TAI CHI / CHI KUNG (YANG STYLE)

Wed (12 Sessions) Oct 06 - Dec 22 | 3:00 PM - 4:15 PM
DESCRIPTION
This course will focus on Yang style choreography. Tai Chi is a medically proven way to develop strength, balance, agility, improved respiration, mental acuity and emotional vitality. Tai Chi integrates the physical dynamics of the martial arts with the science of moving meditation, and the intense mental focalizations and breathing modalities found in the practice of internal energy flow. The movements of this ancient Chinese art form flow with grace and subtlety, and appeal to those who appreciate creativity and diversity in their exercise routine.

This exercise program is intended for a general audience and may not be suitable for everyone. At any time, if you feel discomfort, pain, dizziness, or your heart is beating abnormally, stop exercising immediately and consult a health care professional if necessary.
