Tai Chi has many benefits, as our members will readily attest to. Some of the benefits our members have attributed to their Tai Chi practice include: stress reduction, improved circulation, the lessening of arthritic and other pain, an increase in flexibility, lowered blood pressure, and improved balance.

In our class we practice predominately Yang-style Tai Ji Quan (also spelled as "Tai Chi"); the following forms are taught consecutively: Yang 8, 16, 24, 42. The number associated with each form is the number of movements it contains. New students may spend 6 months to a year on each form before learning the next.
