  • Tai-chi for Health ~ Friday, December 1, 8, 15 - 10:00am
  • Tai Chi is more than just a gentle, flowing, and sometimes 'challenging' form of exercise. It is a way to move through daily life both physically and mentally. This session will include a tai chi/qigong warm up and cool down with concentration on loosening the joints, breathing, and relaxation. We'll learn 3 different forms of tai chi – Sun, Yang, Chen in preparation for a new program! We'll focus on the beginning forms of the Yang 24 (a universal form) and incorporate tai chi principles with each movement. This class is appropriate for beginners, those familiar to tai chi, and excellent as a 'skills builder' for more advanced practitioners. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes. As always, ask your doctor if it's okay -please don't wear any scents to class as it really bothers some people. For more information about the class, contact Linda DeMedio, taichilcd@yahoo.com. Always check with your doctor before participating in any exercise program. Classes are Fridays, 10:00am - 11:00am. The fee is $10 per class drop-in. A portion of the proceeds benefits the library.
