Tai Chi is an exercise system, moving meditation, healing exercise and martial art which unites the body mind and spirit of a practitioner. A self-paced system of gentle physical exercise and stretching, the graceful postures of Tai Chi flow from one to the next without pause, ensuring that your body is in constant motion.

Tai chi has many different styles. Each style has variations in the movements and may emphasize different principles and methods.

Who can learn Tai Chi?

The great news is almost anybody! Tai chi is very low impact and puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it generally safe for all ages and fitness levels. In fact, because tai chi is so low impact, it may be especially suitable if you're an older adult who otherwise may not exercise, or someone with physical limitations. If you do have physical limitations the movements of Tai Chi can be adjusted to allow you to practice safely.
