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. Seniors, in particular, have reported the many benefits of Tai Chi when practiced on a regular basis:
FLC Seniors offers Cai Tai Chi which is based on the 105-movement traditional Yang Style, the most popular form practiced in China.
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.

On September 15, the Government of Alberta issued the Restriction Exemption Program (REP), which the DRCA has implemented.
Additionally, the FLC Seniors Board has stated that ALL participants MUST BE FULLY VACCINATED. The following will be accepted as verification:
Masks and social distancing are required.
Safety is the priority of the Tai Chi committee. In the event of a lockdown, Zoom classes will likely be offered once again. We believe that it is important to continue the gentle and healthy practice of Tai Chi, especially during these tumultuous times.
What to Wear: yoga/jogging pants or loose slacks, comfortable and lightweight shoes, and a white t-shirt or a Cai Tai Chi t-shirt (available for $15 at the start of every session).
