Experience Tai Chi at The Morton Arboretum

Content Detail

Experience Tai Chi at The Morton Arboretum. Move your body with the grace and confidence of the ancient Tai Chi masters who learned the secret of balancing yin and yang–strength with beauty, power with peace, endurance with flow. TaijiFit™ is a form of Tai Chi suitable for beginners. There is no routine or choreography to memorize or get right. Your instructor will lead you into flow using the Qi Cueing method developed by International Master, David-Dorian Ross. 

Attending every class and practicing at home just to keep up will not be needed. Come as often as your schedule allows and never get behind.
