About the Class & Instructor Tai Chi is rooted in Chinese martial arts. The gentle movements help to release tension providing a sense of calm and restored energy. It can be approached as a practice for meditation and good health, as well as a way of harmonizing body and mind to foster and nourish awareness. Tai Chi movements can be practiced by people of all ages and as it involves balanced walking, it results in a relaxed aerobic exercise for major muscle groups and the circulatory system. The practice of Tai Chi also benefits the mind, and learning the form with keen awareness of body movements and balance leads to an increase in mental sharpness. This class series will be an introduction to Tai Chi. The 8 AM class is best suited for beginners and 9 AM class for intermediate level students. Instructor Jorge Bañales Jorge A.
