  • Calm your mind & relax your body with Tai Chi as a moving meditation
  • Strengthen your torso, condition your muscles, and increase physical power
  • Improve your energy, balance, flexibility and breathing

Tai Chi is a sequence of postures connected by flowing movement, practiced with focused breathing and a calm mind—a type of moving meditation. Practicing Tai Chi can reduce stress, increase energy, balance, and flexibility, and ease symptoms of many health problems such as high blood pressure, asthma, back pain, and arthritis.

Tai Chi Ball is a Qigong training and a very important part of Tai Chi practice as it builds the roundness and softness of the body structure. This training can also strengthen the torso, condition the muscles, and increase physical power.

  • The Yang Style Tai Chi Sequence (Traditional Long Form—108 movements) is commonly practiced for relaxation and numerous health benefits
  • The first part of the Tai Chi Sequence (22 movements) will be reviewed during this 7-week course

  • Recommendation: If you have a sports ball or wodden ball available (e.g. basketball, soccer ball, volleyball, kick ball, beach ball, tennis ball), it would be helpful for the training, but you can still participate fully in the session without a ball, if you do not have one.
