Healthy Acadia Introduces Tai Chi
We all know life can be a hectic, juggling work, family and social obligations. Why should you consider adding Tai Chi to your busy schedule? To help create balance. Tai chi is the perfect antidote to our fast-paced modern culture; it is an ancient Chinese practice that incorporates slow, gentle and controlled movement to improve relaxation, flexibility, concentration, and muscle strength.
