Tai Chi Chuan is an art and system of movement based on internal strength. As a martial art and form of self-defense, it is a healthy and relaxing form of exercise suitable for people of all levels of fitness and ability. Characterized by moving exercises known as the Tai Chi Form, which is a series of slow, continuous and flowing movements done with calm concentration, it is often called meditation in motion. We practice the Laojia form, qigong and silk reeling which applied in pushing hands (partner work) develops an understanding of the martial aspects of Tai Chi. We practice Chen style Tai Chi which is the oldest and parent form of other Tai chi styles. So if you’re interested in trying Tai Chi we meet twice a week and everyone’s first class is free. We look forward to seeing you!
