If you’re looking for another way to reduce stress, consider Tai Chi (TIE-cheese). Tai chi is a form of moving meditation that promotes serenity through gentle movements, connecting the mind and body. Tai Chi can enhance mental clarity, emotional equilibrium, and overall health.

Participants will learn “The Eight Pieces of Treasure”: Eight of the most powerful and effective movements for improving health and balancing all your meridians and acupuncture points. The process is enhanced by beautiful guided meditation and music that accompanies each movement, which can be practiced standing or sitting in a chair. No experience is necessary.
