Trounce Free Flow Chi is based on Tai Chi, which is a meditative Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and health benefits. Free Flow Chi classes combine the best elements of fitness, meditation & the ancient martial art of Free Flow Chi to help you harness your inner power. With Free Flow Chi's integrative approach that strengthens the body while focusing the mind, Free Flow Chi addresses a range of physical and mental health issues including bone strength, joint stability, cardiovascular health, immunity, and emotional well-being. Free Flow Chi is especially useful for improving balance and preventing falls. This class also focuses on an individual's flexibility, which is important because flexibility allows for easier and deeper movements while building strength and stability. As individuals age their flexibility decreases, which causes a lack of stability and balance, which is why stretching is a focus during this class. This class is a 35 min class. Tuition for this program is $65.00
