Tai Ji

Tai JiWHAT:

Tai Ji is one of the most effective and widely practiced forms of ancient exercise, using slow, graceful and coordinated movements for health benefits. Daily practice of Tai Ji can help improve balance, coordination, concentration, muscle tone, and agility. Both a tranquil mind and a relaxed body are engaged together while doing Tai Ji. Recent studies have shown that Tai Ji may offer benefits in the areas of stress reduction, increasing energy and endurance, reducing blood pressure, and improving overall feelings of well-being.

INSTRUCTOR: Karen Wilson

I first became interested in Tai Ji as a means to reduce stress, and as a lifelong exercise that was easy on my joints. Since 2002 I have been a student of Tai Ji, attending regular classes and a variety of workshops over the years. In 2007 I was certified as an instructor by Dr. Zibin Guo. It is alway a pleasure to share the principles, the graceful moves, and the health benefits of Tai Ji with others.”
