TAI CHI / CHI KUNG
WITH MIKE VAN NATTER
WHAT IS TAI CHI?
Tai Chi is a centuries old Chinese martial art that uses effective and dynamic exercise forms to strengthen the body and mind from within.
BENEFITS OF TAI CHI / CHI KUNG
Tai Chi is beneficial to health and fitness with a minimal amount of practice.
Tai Chi relaxes the body and settles the mind, helping one combat stress.
Tai Chi gently strengthens and tones your muscles without the breathlessness, sweating and pain of other forms of exercise.
Tai Chi improves balance and posture.
Tai Chi has been known to improve cardiovascular, respiratory and digestive disorders.
This practice, as with meditation, helps one relax and breathe more deeply, thereby reducing stress and helping to eliminate free radicals from the lungs.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN TAI CHI?
A lack of reliance on tension and speed makes it uniquely applicable to anyone - even those with conditions that may exclude them from other forms of exercise. The elderly, overweight, and arthritic can all benefit!
