TAI CHI FOR HEALTH - SUMMER SESSIONS
An invitation for all ages and abilities to practice modernized Tai Chi and Qigong movements created by Dr. Paul Lam of the Tai Chi for Health Institute. The practice maintains the learning and development of the essential principles of Tai Chi for body, mind, and spirit integration, while making it accessible and easily adapted for individual skills, abilities, and wellness capabilities.
A certified instructor, Jennifer Weinert, leads participants in a warm-up, form practice/development and cool down during a one-hour session. Like a brisk walking routine, the exercise consists of slow, steady, gently controlled movements and intentions. At the end of the six weeks the participant will be familiar with a form consisting of 5-6 movements that they can apply to their wellness routine.
A variety of forms are available to learn and beneficial to helping individuals improve and maintain their cardiovascular fitness, stamina, muscular strength, and flexibility while reducing stress and blood pressure through an ongoing practice. The names of forms identify specific conditions the movements help address.
