T’ai-Chi, also called T’ai-Chi Ch’uan, is practiced through a series of gently shifting postures that represent a form of moving meditation. The individual postures in a T’ai-Chi form slowly exercise various muscle groups, while improving balance, agility and mindfulness. Over time, individuals who routinely practice T’ai-Chi can reduce stress through increased levels of physical and mental relaxation, as well as flexibility.
Instruction is provided by Mike and Kim Cain.
Mike is a 7th-generation disciple of Yang-style T'ai-Chi Ch'uan and a student of Master Ray Hayward. Kim has studied and practiced T'ai-Chi for over 10 years.
Med City T'ai-Chi is dedicated to the study of the art and science of T'ai-Chi Ch'uan. It is our belief that T’ai-Chi is universally accessible and that everyone – young or old, weak or strong, male or female, health enthusiast or martial artist – can benefit from studying and practicing this profound art.
