- Description: Qigong / Tai Chi
Explore the health benefits and relaxation offered by the ancient arts of Tai Chi and Qigong! Modifications are available for physical considerations. The goal is to relax, have fun, and increase and maintain health through breathing and the gentle movements of Taiji and Qigong. A tool for improving physical and mental health, Taijiquan is also a martial art, with each movement having applications. Qigong also encourages flexibility and encourages increased balance and stamina. The flexibility that one develops in the practice of Tai Chi and Qigong does not come from pushing the body’s limits, but rather in letting go and relaxing.
This class is excellent for continuing students as well as for beginners. No experience needed. While drop-ins will be allowed by permission only – based on previous experience – it is not recommended, as the form is linear and the advanced-level details of each movement will only be given once. Subsequent classes will add a movement and focus on refinement of the details given the prior classes.
Wear loose, comfortable clothes. There is no floor work or equipment required.
