Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese art of movement used to nurture physical health and promote calmness of mind. The sequence of movements promotes strength and agility, improves balance and circulation, and helps to reduce stress and improve concentration. This beginner's class introduces the principles and practice of Tai Chi through a selection of classic movements from Grandmaster William C.C.Chen’s short form. This class emphasizes alignment and balance and due to the lack of impact it is ideal for all ages. Madeleine loves introducing this art to participants so do not feel intimidated about joining this class and trying Tai chi for the first time.
