This mind body class is designed to help quiet the mind by bringing attention to the breath. Join AARP Nevada, a certified instructor, and attendees from across the U.S for a FREE virtual Tai Chi: Qigong class on April 8th at 5pm ET | 4pm CT | 3pm MT | 2pm PT – AARP membership not required.
Join AARP Nevada and ACE-certified instructor Mitch Menik for Tai Chi: Qigong. This mind body class is designed to help quiet the mind by bringing attention to the breath. Deep diaphragmatic breathing has been shown to lower blood pressure, reduce heart rate, decrease stress hormones, exercise the lungs, increases physical and mental energy, and improve immunity. This breathing technique is one of the body's strongest self-healing tools, and we'll work to practice utilizing this tool in these weekly sessions.
