Tai Chi promotes health & longevity


Yang style Tai Chi is one of the more popular Tai Chi forms practiced today and is considered to be suitable for the majority of people. The slow, fluid movements of this form are good for stress reduction and help to improve strength, balance, lung function, and flexibility.

This is an eight week basic beginner's course during which you will learn a modified Yang style Tai Chi 24 Form plus an 18 motion Tai Chi Qigong.

This course will be taught by Linda Gatson. Linda has practiced and studied Tai Chi under Mr. Sam Lin since 2003. She assisted Mr. Lin with his classes for three years and in 2009 began regularly teaching the class.  Linda has also been leading a daily Qigong practice at UMSL since 2007.
