Roni started her yoga practice about five years ago at a non heated studio. She was destined to find a spiritual outlet to help her untangle through her personal struggles in search of her true self. Yoga transformed Roni into a new person which helped her rise out of the darkness. Roni soon found Power Pilates Yoga Studio, she fell in love with the heated room. The heated room was her weakness, the room humbles her while the heat breaks down the walls she built up around her. Her yoga practice taught her to breakdown those walls and slowly rebuild herself back up. Different poses help open herself up in different ways she didn’t even think were possible. Roni used her yoga practice to heal her life by breaking down her worldly struggles and began rebuilding up her life filled with trust, love, and acceptance. Roni is extremely grateful for all the yoga teachers that she has had, they have changed her life in so many ways.



What is Tai Chi?

Tai chi is an ancient Chinese tradition that, today, is practiced as a graceful form of exercise. It involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing.

Tai chi, also called tai chi chuan, is a noncompetitive, self-paced system of gentle physical exercise and stretching. Each posture flows into the next without pause, ensuring that your body is in constant motion.

Tai chi has many different styles. Each style may subtly emphasize various tai chi principles and methods. There are variations within each style. Some styles may focus on health maintenance, while others focus on the martial arts aspect of tai chi.

Tai chi is different from yoga, another type of meditative movement. Yoga includes various physical postures and breathing techniques, along with meditation.

Who can do tai chi?


Tai chi is low impact and puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it generally safe for all ages and fitness levels. In fact, because tai chi is a low impact exercise, it may be especially suitable if you're an older adult who otherwise may not exercise.

You may also find tai chi appealing because it's inexpensive and requires no special equipment. You can do tai chi anywhere, including indoors or outside. And you can do tai chi alone or in a group class.

Although tai chi is generally safe, women who are pregnant or people with joint problems, back pain, fractures, severe osteoporosis or a hernia should consult their health care provider before trying tai chi. Modification or avoidance of certain postures may be recommended.
