Tai Chi is not only a Chinese martial art, but also a gentle form of exercise, and a mentally stimulating field of study. The slow and graceful movements of Tai Chi cultivate balance, strength, and coordination. Memorizing the sequence also challenges the mind and improves concentration. The practice of Tai Chi has been shown to promote cardiovascular health, better digestion, joint mobility, and better sleep.
Kelly Maclean has practiced Chinese martial arts since 1988. She has studied closely with some of the greatest teachers in the world, including Master Shouyu Liang (her primary teacher), Chen Xiao Wang, Yang Zhen Duo, Madame Wang Jurong, Sam Masich, and Dr. Yang Jwing Ming.

She holds a 7th degree black belt, and is certified in internal styles including Taijiquan (Tai Chi), Xingyiquan, Bagua Zhang, Water style, and Qigong.
