Come join us to learn and practice a modified Tai Chi routine most Fridays at 10:30 am in the Sanctuary, starting October 5!
Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese "mind-body-spirit" practice which has positive effects on muscle strength, flexibility, balance, sleep, as well as emotional and spiritual well-being (https://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/the-health-benefits-of-tai-chi ; http://taichihalth.com/).
I recently learned a short-form modified Tai Chi routine. I have an interest in sharing the knowledge I have gained from that program. I am still a learner in this field, but am happy to share what I know so that we, as a group, can learn and practice together.
This modified Tai Chi routine is ideal for middle aged and older adults and is also suitable for people with mild limitations to their activity/mobility. It requires being able to stand independently and do basic leg and arm movements, weight shifts and turns in a slow and rhythmical way. (Having a chair at the side to sit on for rests works well for those with lower tolerance. It can also be done totally from a chair as a simple "arms only" routine.)
