Tai chi is a martial arts style known for both its defense techniques and its health benefits. As an exercise, it comprises gentle physical exercise and stretching with mindfulness. It has been shown to improve balance control, fitness, and flexibility, and to reduce the risk of falls in older people. It appears to reduce pain and the symptoms of depression. Tai Chi is considered to be safe for people of all ages as it does not put too much stress on the muscles and joints. It is a moving meditation that will also teach you principles of self-defense.

Since working with Chris, I have been able improve my balance which has relieved pain in my hip and lower back.  In addition, Tai Chi is a beautiful form of meditation involving body movements and positive thoughts.  Learning a new skill or activity is good for the brain!”— Cheryl S.
