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. Seniors, in particular, have reported the many benefits of Tai Chi when practiced on a regular basis:

        √  Improved balance, endurance, and flexibility
          √  Reduced pain, stress, and blood pressure levels
          √  Improved posture, core area strength, and mental focus
          √  Improved health, and a sense of well being. 

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.
