Gentle Tai Chi-Qigong consists of gentle stretches and exercise that help improve circulation and release stress. Because the moves are stationary, it is an ideal form of exercise for anyone that has balance issues. This class is a great way to get introduced to tai chi.

This class starts with 30 minutes of warm-up activities from the 4000-year-old practice of Qigong (Chee-gong):
-Stretches
-Breathwork
-Movements to stimulate/improve
- Joint flexibility
- Circulation
- Posture
- Relaxation

The second half of class is the practice of stationary movements taken from the 2000-year-old practice of Tai Chi. Each movement is repeated 3-5 times to each side using either gentle forward-back or side-to-side rocking motions.

These moves help improve:
-Balance
-Brain health (stimulate neural pathways)
-Stamina
-Core Strength

Taught by Trudy Sherman
