T’ai Chi Chuan, or T’ai Chi for short, is an ancient Chinese martial arts practice for defense training that consists of specific movements for health and vitality. It’s a low-impact exercise program centering on mind-body exercise that integrates slow, gentle movements, breathing techniques, and intentional focus that’s perfect for all ages. And unlike exercise which relies on muscular force and tension, the graceful movements of T’ai Chi emphasize relaxation, straightness, and true balance.

Greeley Recreation has been offering T’ai Chi classes for many years at the Greeley Active Adult Center as part of its Wellness program. The instructor, Sifu Fred Jennes, integrates the slowness and grace of T’ai Chi in several specialty classes with over one hundred different movements to help participants perfect the art.
