Morning Tai-Chi: Sun Shen.

Happiness is not a circumstance, it is a cultivation. When you practice Tai-Chi, you get to know a part of you that was hidden and you have been looking for all of your life: the power and potential that your mind and body are really capable of. Classes are held Monday through Friday, 7am to 8:30am. See if it is a right fit for you--enjoy your first week of class for free.
