Tai Chi

Tai Chi with Holly Ojeda

Tai Chi has been called “Moving Meditation”

because the slow, graceful movements can

induce a deep sense of peacefulness.  At the same time, the complexity of the movements

requires intense concentration similar to those experienced when creating a work of art.  The result for many is a sense of timelessness, serenity and the experience of being fully present.
