We have an exciting new Tai Chi class for beginners starting January 15, 2015. Our Tai Chi form uses mindfulness and is a unique restorative anti-aging exercise. It is a deep and honoring way of addressing the complex needs of the Body, Mind, and Spirit. It brings harmony, equipoise, and calmness as it refreshes us from within. It is gentle and soothing to practice and gives lasting health benefits. The postures rhythmically flow like clouds moving in the sky; involve movement, breathing technique, and conscious intent. This style of teaching is not taught elsewhere in the Upper Midwest. It is a Complete Study Course of the Ancient Healing Art from China, passed down and revered for it's unique treasure of Health, Centering, and Internal Strength.
