Tai Chi Beginner (Short Form)

Tai Chi is an ancient form of exercise practiced to achieve therapeutic benefits such as reduced pain and to promote balance and overall strength. This class is the simplified form of Tai Chi, truncated to 24 postures (the long form has 108). Each posture takes about six minutes to perform and gives the beginner an introduction to the essential elements of Tai Chi while retaining the traditional flavor of the longer hand forms.
