Ai Chi (Japanese for Heart Energy) which combines principles of Tai Chi, Shiatsu (stretching of meridians) and Watsu is a warm water based sequence of movements performed with soft background music. It starts with simple breathing, builds up to bigger movements and finally involves the whole body coordination.
The big range of benefits Ai Chi provides include mind & body relaxation, increased balance, pain management, improved range of motion & general mobility, strengthening of core muscles, increased metabolism and blood circulation, mental alertness etc.
It also contributes to reduction of stress, insomnia, depression, fatigue, anxiety and encourages the body into a state of relaxed awareness.
Ai Chi is open and beneficial to complete beginners as well as practitioners and therapists of other forms of bodywork on land or in water.
