An ancient Chinese tradition still practiced today, TAI CHI is meditation in motion and a graceful form of exercise. It involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing. Tai Chi is clinically proven to be one of the most effective exercises to improve health, fitness and relaxation. It is low impact and puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it generally safe for all ages and fitness levels. In fact, because Tai Chi is low impact, it may be especially suitable for older adults who otherwise may not exercise.
Orinoco Fitness offers a 24-posture Simplified Form of Tai Chi. While there are many variations, the 24 Forms is the most widely practiced Tai Chi form and one of the most authentic. These foundational movements will enhance your energy and make learning Tai Chi easier. Our teacher will show you the 24 forms allowing you to follow along with ease. Throughout the lessons, he will explain the Tai Chi principles and how to use them to improve your Tai Chi. .
We encourage you to register for the 6-week sessions so you learn the forms along with the other students. If you own an Orinoco class package, you may also use it to attend classes or pay the $16 drop-in fee.
