Beginner Tai Chi Classes
Explore your potential through the ancient art of tai chi, reconnecting your mind, body, and energy.
We will focus on basic fundamentals for the absolute beginner through step-by-step instruction and repetition to get you started on the right path with your tai chi practice. Over time, consistent training can transform the nervous system to react counterintuitively so that rather than reacting with the normal tension and force to stressful situations in life, we can instead react with a calm and focused awareness to work on a more harmonious and peaceful solution. Be more "alive" as your life energy builds through the practice and develop natural, spontaneous movement which springs from living in the moment and going with the flow with intention and control.
