Friday Tai Chi Starts October 5

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.)

We will meet most Fridays in the Sanctuary at 10:30 am from October 5 until December 21. (However, there will be no meetings on October 26 and November 23). No preregistration is necessary but if you have any questions feel free to contact me (ph 204-257-5818 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
