Tai Chi

Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese soft-styled martial art. It is played in a slow pace, building strength, balance and steadiness while calming the mind.

Qi Gong

Qi means life force energy. Gong is exercise. QiGong is often at the heart of health practices in traditional Chinese medicine. We must work this vital life force for strength, organ health, bone density, a balanced nervous system and tranquil mind. These exercises, all performed standing or seated in a chair, can be followed and don’t have to be memorized. Of course, memorizing can help you continue to practice wherever you are. No equipment is needed to purchase. Just wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
