The class is part of the EAD | CFAH Training Community support of the American Heart Association Work Heart Play Heart fundraiser. The event, run in conjunction with the Buffalo Grove High School National Honor Society, kicked off last Saturday with a fun family fitness event that raised more than $1,200 dollars in two hours.

Register Today. Free Tai Chi Class to Benefit American Heart Association Work Heart Play Heart ($15 donation encouraged).

Tai chi is a graceful form of exercise often described as meditation in motion. The gentle, flowing motions of tai chi help reduce stress, increase flexibility and balance, improve circulation, and develop better posture. An ancient Chinese tradition, tai chi started as a form of martial arts, but has become a popular form of low-impact exercise. According to the Taoist Tai Chi Society of Arlington Heights, regular tai chi practice can also benefit tendons, joints, spine, connective tissue and internal organs.
