Join in on tai chi and qigong classes!

Anyone can benefit from practice: these disciplines are known to be helpful for enhancing longevity and the quality of life. The slow, methodical movements along with the breathing methods can enhance pulmonary and cardiovascular fitness, allowing more efficient breathing and fluid flow through the body.

If you are rehabilitating, the slow, conscientious movements and techniques of tai chi and qigong can help recovery. Both disciplines promote aspects of flexibility and strength.

Both tai chi and qigong practices are great ways to help a person relax, refocus, and re-energize.

What is Tai Chi?
TAI CHI (pronounced “tie-jee”) is a centuries-old Chinese exercise program that promotes good health and balance. It is a series of slow, gentle movements, done in a specific order to facilitate energy flow, fitness, relaxation and focus. Doing tai chi provides multiple health benefits.
What is Qigong?
QIGONG (“chi kung”) is an ancient art form that integrates breathing techniques, postural alignments and physical movements to aid the flow of QI (“chee”), or vital internal energy, and promote self-healing. Everyone can benefit from the practice of qigong, regardless of ability, age, or physical condition.
