Tai Chi

Just a few of the many benefits of tai chi include improved balance, decreased pain, better sleep and lower blood pressure.  The movements are slow and conducted in a continuous, circular and flowing motion while either standing or seated. Workshops will be held outdoors from April through October (weather permitting) and will be held indoors from November through March.
