Qigong/Tai-Chi & Health - Beginners Class
 

At any age you can learn and become proficient in Tai-Chi, an ancient form of meditative exercise originated in China.  Tai-Chi is recognized by slow and energizing movements practiced by millions of people around the world to improve and maintain good health.

Gentle breathing is always at the core of Qigong and Tai-Chi bringing relaxation as you move from one movement to the next.  Experience this powerful exercise, and improve balance, overall bodily wellness with an uplifting feeling of spiritual joy.

NEW - Total Body Strength Workout for Seniors
 

Strength training has incredible benefits for everyone but especially for seniors.  This total body workout is a great way for older adults to get started with strength training.   Experts believe the resistance exercises may forestall declines in strength and muscle mass for decades. Having a strong body helps you avoid injuries, falls, pain and other issues associated with getting older. The exercises taught in this class will focus on building total body strength with an emphasis on improving balance, stability, and flexibility. We will use dumbbells, exercise balls, stability balls, medicine balls, resistance bands, weighted body bars, and chairs for balance and support. All exercises can be done seated or standing. Each class consists of a warm up, strength work, balance and flexibility work and will end with relaxing stretch and cool down.  No matter how old you are, exercise can improve your quality of life and you don’t have to spend a lot of time doing it to see and feel improvements.
