About this course:

Recent research shows that tai chi offers many health benefits, especially for seniors. These benefits accrue from living and moving in accord with tai chi principles. Through understanding the orienting contexts of presence, inner awareness, relaxation and elasticity, we explore how these principles may transform and integrate spirit, mind, inner being, and the body. By understanding and applying Tai Chi, we can alleviate stress, develop peace of mind, encourage emotional well-being, and increase our energy, as well as enhance bodily strength, balance, and efficiency.  In this course, students will be introduced to a new Tai-Chi principle each week, then they will apply their knowledge in a 1-hour guided practice, and close the meeting with reflection and questions.
