Classes will be taught with an emphasis on relaxation and increasing balance and flexibility. Modifications are available for physical considerations. The goal is to relax, have fun, and increase and maintain health. We do this by using breathing and the gentle movements of the form. A tool for improving physical and mental health, Taijiquan is also a martial art. Each movement has practical applications.
