T’ai Chi Ch’uan is a traditional Chinese exercise choreography and martial art. The practice of this exercise can strengthen and tonify muscles, bones and internal organs; and improve circulation, flexibility and endurance. The movements are centered, relaxed and graceful, and can be practiced by people of all ages and physical abilities.

Tai Chi Ch’uan is based on nature, and has the interrelation of opposites as its foundation. The training methods and principles of this system point beyond themselves toward the essence of movement and focused presence. Consistent performance of the T’ai Chi Ch’uan exercise promotes mental and physical integration, well-being and enjoyment.

The classes offer the long Yang style T’ai Chi Ch’uan exercise form, the short sword form, a staff form, martial applications and push-hands.
