FLC Seniors Tai Chi

Seniors Tai Chi in Calgary

Tai Chi is a centuries-old Chinese Martial Art consisting of slow, rhythmic, and focused movements that promote peace, calm, and strength by harnessing ones personal energy into unique flow patterns. FLC Seniors offers Cai Tai Chi which is based on the 105 movement traditional Yang Style, the most popular form practiced in China.

Benefits of Tai Chi: Tai Chi has become very popular among seniors for achieving and maintaining good health and a sense of well being. 
Benefits reported from the continuous practice of Tai Chi include:
        √  Improved balance, endurance, and flexibility

Instructors: Our classes are taught by Master Geng Z. Cai and Master Vicky Wu, two world-class instructors who use their own Cai method of instruction. Students are taught in a friendly and sociable group environment, and are encouraged to focus on the quality, rather than quantity, of movements learned.
