Tai Ji is an ancient martial art and philosophy rooted in Chinese Taoism. It is practiced in slow and graceful forms using gentle movements and relaxed breathing. It is effective in developing strength, balance and flexibility in the body, mind and heart. Daily practice of Tai Ji promotes improved health by lubricating joints, lowering blood pressure, deepening the breath, increasing the flow of chi throughout the body and instilling serenity and well-being.  See Thursday listings for Beginner Tai Ji and Qi Gong.
