Have you tried Tai Chi?

Simple, flowing movements are a key component to Tai-Chi.

Are you looking for a different type of exercise that is low impact?

Experience the gentle flowing, movements of Tai Chi and treat your whole body to a relaxing workout.  Tai Chi won't make you huff and puff. It is ideal for many people who are elderly or have disabilities. You can often do Tai Chi even when you use a wheelchair or walker. Many of the movements can be adapted and be done from a sitting position.


Tai Chi can help to:


  • Enhance your stamina

  • Make you stronger

  • Help you breathe easier

  • Achieve better balance

  • Improve your posture

  • Lessen joint stiffness

  • Increase flexibility

  • Raise your energy level

  • Relieve stress


The only gear you need for Tai Chi is your body and some loose-fitting clothing like a comfortable T-shirt or sweat shirt and shorts or lightweight pants. Cotton blends or other breathable fabrics are best. Wear cotton socks and comfortable sneakers.
