Tai Chi

Wednesdays @ 9:30–11:30 a.m.
Art Studio 1
Fee: Punch cards may be purchased for $100 for eight classes. Classes are ongoing and taken at any time. Students only pay for the classes they attend.

Andrew Weil, M.D. a world-renowned leader and pioneer in the field of integrative medicine, often seen on PBS, states, “I view tai chi as an effective form of mental and physical stimulation, and very beneficial for overall health. Like yoga, tai chi is a reliable method of stress reduction and relaxation, and it promotes flexibility, balance, and good body awareness. It is pleasing to watch and perform, and as [a recent] study suggests, it may be the best type of exercise to reduce the risk of injury from falls among seniors.”

Meeting the needs of both the beginning and experienced practitioner, this class offers the Yang style long form of tai chi chuan. New students are encouraged to come and try a class before purchasing a punch card. Mark Tomlinson is a certified tai chi instructor with 20 years of experience.
