Tai Chi Advanced
Aug 28 @ 9:30 am – 10:30 am
Tai Chi Advanced

Taiji (tai chi), short for Tai ji quan, or T’ai chi ch’üan (pinyin: tàijíquán; 太极拳), is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training, its health benefits and meditation. The term taiji refers to a philosophy of the forces of yin and yang, related to the moves. Though originally conceived as a martial art, it is also typically practiced for a variety of other personal reasons: competitive wrestling in the format of pushing hands (tui shou), demonstration competitions and achieving greater longevity. As a result, a multitude of training forms exist, both traditional and modern, which correspond to those aims with differing emphasis. Some training forms of tàijíquán are especially known for being practiced with relatively slow movements.

Latin Moves
Aug 28 @ 11:30 am – 12:30 pm
