    YEUNG STYLE TAI CHI  Image result for tai chi

    Tai Chi is one of the original Chinese mar¬tial Arts. The Yeung Style (from the Yeung Family of Yeung Cheng Po) is practiced to¬day throughout the world as an exercise that cultivates mental as well as physical wellbe¬ing. Its slow fluid movements and emphasis on relaxation and internal softening make it an ideal exercise for people of all ages. Our instructor, Bob McManus (Provtaichi.com), has been a student and teacher of the Yeung style of Tai Chi for over 30 years. He has gone to Hong Kong eight times where he studies with the Yeung family to deepen his understanding of this ancient and effective martial art and health system. Eight 1-hour sessions.
