This tai chi class trains participants to move more efficiently with the limitations they currently have. This will in turn help avoid movements that cause distress. It will not correct damage from physical trauma or surgery, but it offers more productive ways to hold and move their bodies in alignment that allows relaxation and release from discomfort. By minimizing the energy drain on their physical shortcomings, participants will have greater vitality and physical strength. Regular practice of tai chi improves muscle and joint function and is often cited as an effective therapy for both osteopathic and rheumatoid arthritis. Regular practice also improves athletic performance in areas such as golf, tennis, and skiing, along with improved biomechanical efficiency in all forms of strenuous physical effort from gardening to carpentry.
9:30 – 11:30 a.m.
Fee: Classes are ongoing and may be started at any time. Punch cards may be purchased for $100 per eight classes. Students only pay for the classes they attend.
Mark Tomlinson is a certified tai chi instructor with 14 years of experience.
