Tai Chi - A Connection Between Body, Mind, and Spirit
Tai chi, pronounced "tie chee", is a mind-body practice that originated in China as a martial art.
Tai chi has 3 basic components: movement, meditation, and Dan Tien breathing. While
practicing tai chi moves, you will move your body slowly and gently, while breathing deeply

goals. Practicing Tai chi allows you be in the moment and connect with your body so it can work
