Tai Chi and Qi Gong are simple traditional Chinese practices that use your inner strength or "Qi" to feel better. These simple healthy movements will improve blood circulation, balance, and the empowerment of your own self-care. This instruction is designed for people of all ages, and diverse physical abilities. Tai Chi is like a gentle river. like one long flow. Qi Gong is often described as being more like clouds made up of individual movements. After a Qi Gong warm up we will study the mainland China Yang Family short form. See for yourself how playing can help with equilibrium, aches and pains, and overall health. No special clothes or matts are needed, you can do this anywhere, anytime.
