Travel the California coast to find the ultimate Tai Chi destinations
Thursday, 23 June 2011
One of the key elements of tai chi is the rhythm and fluidity witch which the exercises are carried out, and nothing helps better regulate one's pace than the constant ebb and flow of the ocean's waves. Not only does this white noise help in stress management, it allows a practitioner to better control their breathing. For those who are looking for a great location to hone their tai chi skills along the shoreline of the pacific, Sunset.com recently outlined some of the best coastal hideaways in California.
The Coast Guard House Historic Inn in Point Arena is a remote and beautiful site that sits atop a bluff and offers fantastic views of the ocean. It is not uncommon to see gray whales from the Cape-cod style bungalow, and the nearby beaches are largely unpopulated leading to much peace and quiet.
Two Harbors on Catalina Island is even more remote, and offers visitors the opportunity to snorkel, kayak and just enjoy the sea in a calm and beautiful setting.
Those who like to get in the water may also enjoy the Cass House Inn and Restaurant in Cayucos, a small surf town that is largely undeveloped and therefore uncrowded.
