Ai Chi Anyone?

Ai Chi Anyone

Ai Chi is a water version of exercise similar to the ancient Chinese practice of T’ai Chi. 

Japanese Swim Coach, Jun Konno created Ai Chi in the early 1990’s.  This water form of exercise is easily performed in shoulder deep water.  Knowing how to swim is not a prerequisite.

Learn 16 moves in a warm, solar-heated pool and promote your body’s flexibility, improved joint range of motion, enhanced circulation throughout your entire body and decrease your  stress-insomnia, depression, anger, fatigue, anxiety and confusion while you simultaneously increase your metabolism, caloric consumption and mental alertness.

Results are the feeling that you are using your body in the way it was meant to be utilized!  Synchrony!

Coordinating deeper breaths with your body movements enhances the function of your internal systems of regulation.   A Japanese proverb reminds us that “willow does not break under the weight of snow”…

Master this gentle sequence of upper-lower body and trunk moves and gain improved balance, stability and strength!
