Tai Chi Essentials, Level # 1 (16 or older)
The soft, flowing movements of Tai Chi help people of all ages tone the body, increase concentration, and improve circulation. Gentle turning and shifting movements relieve stress and exercise every part of the body without strain. Tai Chi energizes the body and calms the mind while improving balance and flexibility.
The Level One class is fun and helps students learn the Essentials of Tai Chi. This includes gentle stretching exercises and the basics of posture, breathing, stance, stepping, turning, and individual techniques. Basic techniques are learned in preparation for incorporating them into the Solo Exercise in the next class.
