Tai Chi Sampler to Reduce Stress and Boost Immunity
This is a simple to learn Tai Chi practice made up of four moves, or “forms” as they are called, proven to reduce stress and boost immunity when practiced regularly. The practice may be done seated if necessary or with a chair nearby to rest a hand upon. Both will be demonstrated during the lessons. We will learn the four forms in both the left and right directions along with proper “Dantian” (energy center) breathing. The four forms are from three different styles of Tai Chi named Chen, Yang and Sun. The class is called a “sampler” for this reason. Students need no special equipment, very little space and should wear comfortable clothing. Tai Chi is done very slowly and is very safe. Please check with your physician before starting this class if you have any concerns about your ability to participate.
Wear comfortable clothing and bring a water bottle. Very thin, flexible soled shoes are best or socks with non-slip bottoms should be worn. If you have any concerns, please check with your Doctor before participating.
ONLINE WITH ZOOM
You will need to be sure the Zoom app is installed on your device. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing a secure link to join the class.
You will be able to login 15 minutes before the class start time. We recommend logging in before the class starts to make sure you are settled in and ready to go when the class is set to begin.
If you are new to Zoom, please note that we will not be able to help with the app. It is strongly recommended that you navigate Zoom on your own before the class starts to get to know the mute and video settings. Try it out by talking with a friend or family member who has the Zoom app. The Cultural Center uses Zoom to conduct online classes, and I understand that the Zoom meeting will be recorded. By participating in the class, I consent to be recorded and place no restrictions on distribution of the recording.
