EARTH BALANCE TAI CHI
MOVEMENT AND STILLNESS FOR HEALTH, HAPPINESS, LONGEVITY
The Classical Chinese arts teach us how to combine slow body movements with a concentrated mind and deep breathing. Welcome to Earth Balance Tai Chi, a school of Chen Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Taoist Meditation with instructor Nicola. Tai Chi and Qigong movements are based on the theory of Traditional Chinese medicine to strengthen and nourish the physical, emotional and spiritual body. They combine aligned body mechanics, applied relaxation, diaphragmatic breathing and body awareness to help the functions of the body to work better.
