Tai Chi and Qigong are closely related. Qigong was the earliest form of exercise in China. It eventually gave rise to the many different forms of Tai Chi and other martial arts.
Cari Shurman’s program at the Ranch will focus on energy flow, breathing, relaxation & movement to energize the organs, muscles & joints. The additional benefits include coordination, loosening, stretching the muscles, and muscle tone. The 90-minute classes are suitable for all levels of fitness, and Qigong or Tai Chi experience is not necessary. Trained as a teacher at Johns Hopkins University and the University of Michigan, Cari has taught in many countries around the world as well as the United States. Over the last 8 years, Cari has been the creator and teacher of Tai Chi Moves for Kids, co-founded and co-directed Within Wellness Center in Miami and taught Tai Chi and Qigong, visualization and relaxation for adults and children.
