Tai Chi is a meditative moving practice that has been gaining popularity in recent years with many studies tying this practice to improved health, wellness as well as longevity. Evidence-based studies have shown that the health and wellness benefits of Tai Chi practice may include increased bone density, lowered blood pressure, increased physical strength and balance, increased immune function, decreased anxiety and depression as well as decreased inflammation.
Experienced instructor Aimee Van Ostrand, owner of Healing Within Acupuncture & Wellness Studio, will introduce you to this beneficial practice. Class will start with a few tai chi warm-up exercises and learning of basic tai chi principles. By the end of the 2nd class, you will have the basic movements of the complete Yang Style Short Form of Tai Chi. You can easily keep up your practice on your own or join in one of Aimee’s Tai Chi Meditation or Tai Chi by the River group practices to further refine your form. Hopefully, the weather will allow us to practice outside for part of the series!
