Long Wind Tai Chi

Tai Chi at Long Wind Farm in Thetford

Tai Chi Chuan is a martial art, an energizing exercise, and a calming meditation. It can be done by people of all ages. It is rooted in the concepts of balance and transformation as expressed in the familiar yin/yang symbol. Tai chi reduces stress and enhances mental and physical strength and well being.
