Classic T’ai Chi
Wednesdays and Fridays: 2:00-3:00 pm
Certified Instructor: Linda Gast
Cost: $10 a month members
“T’ai Chi is completed in chairs and/or standing up”
There are three aspects of T’ai Chi: Health, Meditation, and Martial Art. T’ai Chi used for health purposes concentrates on our internal energy and breath. Practicing the movements using correct body alignments improves our mental alertness, balance, coordination and strength. T’ai Chi as a martial art concentrates on using your opponent’s movements and center of gravity to effectively redirect the attack with appropriate responses. Classical T’ai Chi practice shows favorable effects on the following chronic conditions: stroke, heart failure, high blood pressure, heart attacks, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, fibromyalgia, arthritis and improved immune system.
(Take both classes for $40 a month)
