Know Before You Go

This body practice moves at a slower speed, using fluid, flowing movements while you focus on deep, regulated breathing, mental imagery, and meditation. But don’t let its pace fool you, as the exercises can be extremely stimulating to both body and mind. Tai Chi is often practiced in parks, and it is advisable that you wear loose clothing.
