Abide in Chi offers an hour-long Tai Chi for health class at the Gracie Barra Jiu Jitsu Center in South Miami and Cutler Ridge Park in Cutler Bay.
A mind-body practice addressing physical, mental and spiritual health, Tai Chi is a holistic approach to wellness.
Practiced for centuries by the Chinese, the internal art is a proven fitness program that provides aerobic activity, mental relaxation, and strength and endurance conditioning.
Participants experience flexibility, coordination, stress release, increased energy, strengthened muscles, reduced joint stiffness, and improved balance, posture and circulation.
In addition to the health benefits, Tai Chi's artistic and athletic moves provide enjoyable and challenging physical activity.
Being that Tai Chi is a low-impact exercise that uses slow and even movements, people of all ages can participate. It is a life-long practice that is embraced by youth as well as seniors.
The classes feature Sun and Yang Style Tai Chi and includes Qigong, deep breathing exercises.
