This class takes place in person only.

Intermediate Tai Chi is aimed at anyone who has gained an understanding of the basics of tai chi and is looking for a gentle challenge to further improve their fitness.

Originating in ancient China, tai chi is one of the most effective exercises for the health of the mind and body. It combines deep breathing and relaxation with flowing movements, which studies have shown to improve people’s physical and mental state.
