What is T’ai Chi?
Health and rejuvenation are the primary goals of T’ai Chi, a system of slow, gentle, non-strenuous movements ideal for people of any age who want to stay flexible, increase their energy and reduce stress. T’ai Chi literally means “the play of opposites.” Professor Goldfarb shares with you this wonderful art where one joins the mind, the body and the spirit. It leads to more graceful, effortless movement in your everyday life.
