why tai chi

The Chinese have found something that flows through the human body and it is called "chi." In English it roughly translates as "vital energy" or "energy force (sometimes referred to as life force)." This chi flows through a certain path throughout the body that is referred to as meridians. Regular practice of Tai Chi helps open up these meridians so that chi can flow freely throughout the body. Therefore, the first benefit someone will feel from regular practice of Tai Chi is an increase in energy or life force. Set up a free trial class and experience for yourself the great impact tai chi can have on your life!
