Event Details

The Slow Dance

Tai Chi + Nia Technique

 

Respecting the body’s inherent balance of yin and yang energies yields ability to adapt to a variety of rhythms and movements in all stages of life.  Moving slowly while focusing internally increases calmness and sensitivity bringing vitality to muscle and connective tissue.  Primarily a physical practice Tai Chi clears the mind and heightens kinesthetic awareness fundamental to overall health and well-being. 

 

Physical Benefits of Tai Chi include:

• deep relaxation

• calming affect on nervous system
