Tai Chi for Balance

Tai Chi helps increase physical and mental balance through slow, low impact, graceful movements. Tai chi addresses the four components needed for balance: musculoskeletal, sensory and perceptual, neuromuscular synergy, and cognitive ability.

Tai Chi for Strength

Tai Chi conditions the muscles, tendons and ligaments through active relaxation and expansion of the body. Tai Chi’s mindful practice helps to strenghten both the major muscle groups as well as the supportive muscles responsible for stability and balance.

“The most spectacular change by far is my ability to balance on one foot, something I wasn’t very good at but that has definitely improved. Every class with Kris feels like a vacation as it gives my busy mind a rest from everything else that usually occupies it. I come out of class refreshed and I am improving week by week. The biggest surprise to me is that Tai Chi is so much fun!”

“Kris has a way of teaching that makes this discipline easy to learn and master. I keep going to refine my abilities and strengthen my core. What a great way to learn balance and stay agile. I am among the oldest in the class and easily keep up with those younger. If you are looking for low impact exercise, this is the class for you. Makes you strong and agile. Run, don’t walk to sign up for class.”

“After a series of hip injuries—with associated surgery, doctor’s appointments and physical therapy—I still required a cane just to get out of bed. I started taking Tai Chi and started feeling a difference almost immediately. After a few classes, I could walk without my cane. Now, not only do I not need a cane, but you can watch me confidently stand on one leg!”
