INTRODUCTION TO TAI CHI AND CHI-KUNG

INTRODUCTION TO TAI CHI AND CHI-KUNG

INTRODUCTION TO TAI CHI AND CHI-KUNG with Harriet Laurin:  Sunday, February 10, 10:15 AM to 12:15 PM in the Social Hall.  A two-hour interactive, hands-on session providing a basic understanding of Tai Chi and Chi Kung, which is an integrative mind-body "internal martial art" originating from China, often taught as a gentle exercise system in the United States.  Suitable for mature teens and adults of all ages, the movements can be adjusted to allow for individuals at nearly every level of health, fitness, and flexibility.  Participants will learn a few exercises and movements to continue practicing at home. The instructor is Harriet Laurin, who began studying Tai Chi in 1989, apprenticed as an instructor under Grandmaster Steve Sun from 1990 to 1995, and taught in her own school from 1995 until 2008.  Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable, non-restricting clothing that allows freedom of movement.  If you tend to overheat easily, consider layering your clothing.  For footwear, light-weight, supportive sneakers or footwear with a non-skid bottom are fine (some may choose to practice barefoot).  You may also wish to bring a yoga mat or towel as we may do some floor stretching to warm up.  

Questions?  Contact Harriet at helaurin@gmail.com, and include "TAI CHI" in subject line of the email.  Please RSVP to: sisterhood-president@bethchaim.net
