T'ai Chi for Exercise - Mondays and Thursdays, 5:30 p.m. in Pickard Hall
Tai Chi is often referred to as “Moving Meditation” because of the way it reduces many types of stress. Meditative focus with movement allows the mind and body to work together to achieve balance and results in a great feeling of well-being. This quiet movement encourages prayerful reflection and mindfulness of the good things in life. The workout is low- impact and physically rewarding as well as calming for the mind. Wear sneakers and loose clothing…you will not need a mat – there is no floor work. Health Ministries sponsors this ongoing class taught by Honey Music. Two class times are offered: 5:30 pm on Mondays and Thursdays in Pickard Hall (gym). Sign up for the 8-class course for $64 (pay at first session to instructor, you can pay by the week if you need to do so). Enrollment is ongoing and we welcome new students year-long.
