SURF CITY, NC (WECT)- The ancient Chinese tradition of Tai Chi is hitting the Surf City Parks & Recreation group exercise schedule in January, with a goal of getting people who don't normally exercise, to get motivated try something new.

Tai Chi is a moving meditation with many health benefits. The deep breathing, gentle twisting motions and posture flows can lower blood pressure, relieve stress, strengthen the immune system, improve balance and develop mindfulness.

Instructor David Key will hold a special Tai Chi orientation on at the Community Center on Saturday, January 5 at 10:30 a.m. and classes will be on Tuesday nights starting Jan. 8 from 6-7 p.m. and will initially run through Jan. 29. The cost is just $5 per class.
