Tai Chi for Beginners
July 1 @ 1:30 pm - July 29 @ 3:00 pm$125
Harvard Medical School calls the ancient practice of taiji “meditation in motion” and, like meditation, it can help manage stress by creating a heightened sense of self-awareness and soothing the nervous system. Regular practice can also enhance joint flexibility, circulation, and range of motion and improve balance, no matter your age or fitness level. The class will begin with an examination of the principles of taiji; students will learn the first section of a yang-style long form and a series of simple qigong movements to strengthen the body, focus the mind, and regulate breathing. Whether you are new to taiji or have some experience, this class will enhance your practice. Wear loose clothing. Returning students welcome. If the weather permits, class may be held outdoors. Class meets on five Mondays, July 1-29, from 1:30-3pm.
