Want to reduce stress? Consider Tai Chi. This ancient martial art promotes serenity through gentle, flowing, low-impact movements. Tai Chi is often described as "meditation in motion." In addition to stress reduction, it is used to help with other health conditions. It puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it ideal for all ages and fitness levels. Award-winning martial artist Nikki Desch is the Instructor.
