What is Tai Chi?

Tai Chi, also known as Tai Chi Chuan, is an ancient Chinese martial art that combines slow, deliberate movements, meditation, and breathing exercises. It is often referred to as "meditation in motion" and is practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits.

Why Should You Practice Tai Chi?
  • Improves Balance and Flexibility: The slow, controlled movements help enhance physical stability and coordination.
  • Reduces Stress and Anxiety: The meditative aspects of Tai Chi promote relaxation and mental calmness.
  • Boosts Cardiovascular Health: Regular practice can improve heart health and circulation.
  • Enhances Overall Well-being: Tai Chi fosters a holistic sense of wellness, integrating mind, body, and spirit.

We offer Tai Chi classes at 10am every Thursday in Elmira at the Woolwich Memorial Center. Classes are open to beginners through advanced practitioners. Our session runs from September through to June 20th. Drop ins are welcome.

Note: Tai Chi class is cancelled for June 13th.
