This class will improve your balance, stability, and coordination through proven methods from Qigong, Tai Chi, and Western Mind/Body science. Research shows that Tai Chi is an excellent way for Seniors to develop balance and fluidity of movement; in this class you will be learning an easy, modified Tai Chi form. You will also practice brain stimulating techniques from Western Science to assist coordination and cognition. In addition, the Qigong movements and mind activity bring inner balance, relaxation, improved immunity, and overall wellbeing. These combined approaches are carefully orchestrated to work on all aspects of balance simultaneously. The class is appropriate for anyone with reasonable mobility who is motivated to maintain a good balance of spirit, mind  and body throughout their lives.
