Tai Chi

The ancient art of tai chi uses gentle flowing movements to reduce the stress of today's busy lifestyles and improve health. Tai chi, in fact, is often described as "meditation in motion" because it promotes serenity through gentle movements - connecting the mind and body. Originally developed in China as a form of self-defense, tai chi is a graceful form of exercise that has existed for some 2,000 years. Practiced regularly, tai chi can help you reduce stress and enjoy other health benefits. Tai chi, sometimes called tai chi chuan, is a noncompetitive, self-paced system of gentle physical exercise and stretching.
