Serendipity Tai Chi is not a style, it represents my philosophy of appreciating life's "happy accidents" that enrich and strengthen our lives and the lives of those around us. Tai Chi is a wonderful way to bring people together in peace, harmony, and health. Perhaps the one hour of gentle practice of Tai Chi may be the first relaxing moment in a busy day: a gift to ourselves that we all deserve!
What is Taiji?
Taiji (Tai Chi) is an ancient form of Chinese exercise based on gentle self-defense movements emphasizing relaxation and better health through both mental and physical harmony.
There is emphasis on improving flexibility, balance and coordination. You can re-learn how to walk, sit and stand the Taiji way to reduce wear and tear on the body.
- Guided practice in relaxation through the gentle movements.
- Strength building basic exercises through postures and slow movements.
- Improve mental focus.
- Improved balance and coordination will reduce the chance of injury causing falls.
