Dec 12 2018
Return to event listing

Although Tai Chi is a martial art, the movements are performed slowly and softly with smooth transitions between them.  The practice of Tai Chi fosters a calm and tranquil mind, and is often referred to as moving meditation.  The benefits include stress management, improvement in balance, inner peace, and enhanced wellness.  The Basic Tai Chi course will focus on the fundamentals of Tai Chi practice, with a brief explanation on Tai Chi and Qi Gong, and the many benefits for health and wellness.  It will include discussions, demonstrations, and participants will be introduced to the basics of Tai Chi through gentle movements and exercise.  We will start with a short warm-up and continue with Qi Gong exercises, basic breathing and walking, and simple Tai Chi movements.  No prior experience is necessary.  Participants should dress comfortably, with loose fitting clothing preferable and footwear should be sneakers or socks.  Sitting meditation can be done either in a chair or on the floor; participants may wish to bring a mat.
