TAI CHI – TUESDAY AND THURSDAY

$45

with Volunteer Leader

Calendar Apr 4, 2023 at 10 am, runs for 12 weeks

One of the longest-running classes at SVACE since 2017 is Tai Chi, hosted by Bob Mason. In this easygoing course, Bob taught us to recondition the mind and body simply through movement, breathing and focusing. He aptly called it “meditation in motion.” This course is now listed under the SENIOR CENTRAL section of our brochure. Bob has retired from our program, so a couple of loyal Tai Chi students are now leading the group in both the Qigong exercises and the Yang Style 24 forms as well as introducing new paragraphs of the 42 Form. Please join us this spring in the newly renovated Pike Hall in Cornish to renew your mind and body. Please pre-register as a minimum of 8 people is required to run the course.
