the receptionist can help you find room 211. This group meets all year
and is self-directed by the members. No registration is needed and
newcomers are always welcome.
Understanding Tai ChiTai Chi, also called tai chi chuan, is a noncompetitive, self-paced
system of gentle physical exercise and stretching. To do tai chi, you
perform a series of postures or movements in a slow, graceful manner.
Each posture flows into the next without pause, ensuring that your body
is in constant motion.
All forms of Tai Chi include rhythmic patterns of movement that are
coordinated with breathing to help you achieve a sense of inner calm.
The concentration required for tai chi forces you to live in the present
moment, putting aside distressing thoughts.
