Master Hong will also talk about how Taichi originated from ancient Chinese philosophy, Chinese medicine and Qigong.

You can expect increased flexibility, leg strength, coordination, and balance, as well as learning to be relaxed in an energetic way.

Taichi is an ideal aerobic exercise for life time. Do you know that practicing Taichi maintains spine health and increases bone density? It is beneficial to the cardio-vascular, respiratory, and nervous systems, digestive system, balance and also improves circulation of Chi.
