Tai Chi Beginner

This tai chi class is based on the Tai Chi for Health Programs of Dr. Paul Lam. This course is designed for those who have had little or no experience with tai chi, but are interested in learning. These forms provide a gentle stretching and strengthening of the joints, muscles, and tendons of the body. Participants should wear loose fitting clothes and shoes with good support. The exercise level is equivalent to that of a brisk walk; and as with all exercise programs, folks planning to participate are asked to consult their doctors before doing so.
