Chair Tai Chi
Learn the ancient graceful movements of Tai Chi. For safety in a virtual environment, the class has been modified and will be performed from a seated position in a sturdy chair. We will begin with gentle stretching and movements (suitable for all ages) to increase energy and circulation. Then we will practice the 12 classical tendon exchange exercises (Yi Gun Gin) to strengthen your tendons and bones, concluding with Tai Chi movements. This class is designed to integrate both mind and body, thereby creating balance and energy to sustain a healthy immune system. Additional benefits are improved posture, managing stress, and slowing the aging process.
Presenter, Phil Cross, has studied at Peter Kwok's Kung Fu Academy and is trained in Guang Ping Yang Tai Chi.
