Maggie Mackey continues her popular Taiji classes with a five-week series that begins Fri., Nov. 12. She offers an introduction to the basic principles of Taiji (Tai Chi Chuan), a traditional Chinese art known to develop strength, balance and flexibility. These exercises are performed in a gentle, flowing sequence of relaxed movements. Beneficial effects include relaxation, stress reduction, increased blood circulation and rejuvenation. Taiji practice is very good for building up your health and strength; it is a well-balanced exercise, "healthening" the body and mind.

Mackey has studied Yang Style Taiji continuously since 1983 in North America, Europe and Asia. Her teachers include two generations of Tung Family Taiji masters, and the well-known and respected local teacher Jane Golden.
