Tai chi classes
Tai chi is the most practiced form of exercise in the world. Originally developed in ancient China for self-defense, it has evolved into a graceful form of exercise used for stress reduction and a variety of other health conditions. Referred to by the Harvard Medical School as "medication in motion," tai chi provides research supported healing and support for those with arthritis, heart disease, high blood pressure, sleeplessness, fibromyalgia, and back and spinal problems, as well as reduces stress and increases strength, mobility, balance and endurance. But don't let the gentle moves fool you; thirty minutes of tai chi burns the same amount of calories as thirty minutes of brisk walking.
2015 sessions now available for registration! Call 765-325-2940 or email email@example.com to register. About Tai Chi and 2015 class sessions >>
