Tai Chi Chuan is the Chinese system of slow meditative physical exercise designed for relaxation and improving your balance and health.  This class is designed for adults of all ages and promotes a comfortable and enjoyable way to learn the very basic movements.  A factor to mention in the growing interest of Tai Chi is the ongoing biomedical research that shows many positive effects on brain activity and other health benefits.
