Tai Chi for Meditation & Balance
Tai Chi, a Chinese martial art, is often referred to as "moving meditation." Practitioners move their bodies slowly, gently, and with awareness, while breathing deeply. This series will introduce you to the basic mechanics of Tai Chi and movement sequences that help improve balance. We will also work on breathing that allows us to move as efficiently and relaxes as possible.
