Ai Chi gets its name from the dry-land sport, Tai Chi. The water-based program combines deep, rhythmic breathing techniques with slow, broad movements. These motions help center the entire body and allow participants to appreciate the water in a flowing, natural progression. Ai Chi benefits both the body and mind. It provides participants with physical and psychological benefits, including increased oxygen levels, stability, heightened metabolic rates, flexibility, and overall range of motion.
The Ai Chi III DVD changes the Ai Chi focus and allows its viewers to experience the sport at a new level. The 65-minute DVD focuses on what's called “The Visualization Journey”. This unique approach to Ai Chi centers on the journey's four pathways: preparing, healing, cultivating, and applying. The DVD is aimed at participants who are already well versed in Ai Chi. The above and underwater footage helps viewers get a full sense of the sport's movements.
