Tai Chi Classes

Saturdays, 10 am to 11 am

$10 for members; $15 for nonmembers (includes full Garden admission)
Registration is required; class size is limited to 25 adults.


Tai Chi originated from ancient China. The exercise movements are flowing and gentle, but profoundly powerful; it is an art form as well as an exercise. The movements are flowing and gentle, but profoundly powerful. The main objective of the practice of Tai Chi is to magnify, strengthen, and encourage the flow of the internal energy, the "chi".  When the "chi" flows throughout the body, one experiences over-all health, rejuvenation, and internal joy. Led by Josefina McMahon, this class is based on Sun Style Tai Chi which combines Qi gong and Tai Chi. Wear sneakers or closed comfortable shoes and loose top and pants. Classes will be held inside. Bring a towel and water.
