St. Francis Tai Chi
This Chinese art focuses on slow, flowing movements, breathing, and meditation. A low-impact form of exercise, Tai Chi can improve physical condition, muscle strength, coordination, flexibility, balance – and decrease risk of falls. Emphasis is placed on breathing, posture, balance, “opening” of the joints, “softening” the body, as well as circulating the “chi” or “life force.” Each session runs 90 minutes, and the workshop spans seven weeks.
Time: 5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
