Although Tai Chi is slow and gentle and doesn’t leave you breathless, it addresses the key components of fitness — muscle strength, flexibility, balance, and, to a lesser degree, aerobic conditioning. Highly recommended by many recognized medical authorities.  There’s plenty of space for newcomers to join us.  Outdoor training weather permitting.
