Tai Chi-July series

Tai Chi-July series In-Person

Join Sifu Alex Lamas courtesy of the Greenburgh Evergreen Club to learn Tai Chi in this summer series!

The primary focus of Tai Chi is to combine mind, body and spirit to work as one. According to Chinese medicine, “Qi” is the vital force that animates the body as well as the electrical impulses that travel through the nervous system. Practicing Tai Chi is a way to enhance the circulation of Qi in the body, which can also help with balance, coordination, proper breathing and developing fine motor skills. Tai Chi can help one to better stand, walk and run. It's beneficial for strengthening the joints, as well as receiving some of the pain caused by arthritis. As a moving meditation, it helps to build concentration and develop a calm mind, thus relieving stress.  All are welcome.

This class will be held at the library on Thursdays, July 11 through September 19, 2024, broken down into three monthly class series. To allow as many people as possible to attend, REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED EACH MONTH for that month's class series.
