Tai Chi Chih & Qigong Moving Meditation Classes

May 22 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:30am on Wednesday, repeating until September 25, 2019

Take an hour out of your busy week to enjoy a free, rejuvenating Tai Chi Chih/Qigong class!

Tai Chi Chih (pronounced tie chee cha) is like moving meditation. It consists of 19 movements and one posture.

Tai Chi Chih creates an awareness of and influences dimensions of our being that are not part of traditional exercise programs. It’s a non martial form of Tai Chi that increases the life force or vital energy that flows through us and all things in the universe. Various studies from Harvard Medical School and UCLA cite the many benefits of regular practice.

This class meets weekly on Wednesdays at 10 am. Always FREE to the public.

Old pros and those who have just started practice, as well as curious bystanders of all ages welcome!

 

Free Tai Chi Chih/Qigong classes will be taught in Congress Square Park May through September. All classes will occur weekly on Wednesdays from 10 until 11 am, led by Sara Leonard.

 

What’s Tai Chi?

Tai chi is an ancient Chinese tradition that, today, is practiced as a graceful form of exercise. It involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing.
 
A noncompetitive, self-paced system of gentle physical exercise and stretching, each posture flows into the next without pause, ensuring that your body is in constant motion.
 
Tai chi is low impact and puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it generally safe for all ages and fitness levels. In fact, because tai chi is a low-impact exercise, it may be especially suitable if you’re an older adult who otherwise may not exercise.
