Tai Chi was developed more than a thousand years ago in China
as a method of balancing the mind and body. It's part workout, part mediation,
part dance. The principal exercise, the Form, is a relaxing series of movements
that reduces stress while building coordination and balance. Morning Tai
Chi groups are a very familiar sight in many of San Francisco's parks,
including Alamo Square, Brooks Park, Buena Vista Park, Cayuga Playground,
Excelsior Playground, Huntington Park, McLaren Park, Precita Park, Stow
Lake, Washington Square, West Portal Playground, and more.
