T’ai Chi – Yang Style: Beginning

  • T’ai Chi (or tai chi ch’uan) is claimed to be the oldest martial art. But it is also a gentle exercise that can provide innumerable health benefits for body, heart and mind.  Practiced consistently, it can improve balance, lower blood pressure, reduce anxiety, ease depression, and has even been shown to benefit those with Parkinson’s disease.  Tai chi requires no special equipment and can be practiced anywhere there is a flat surface and a 5 ft. square of open space. The Beginning class is open to anyone who is interested.  The Intermediate class is for those who have learned at least the “first third” of the form, and/or has the teacher’s permission.  Wear loose, comfortable clothing and flat, flexible shoes.

Classic R&B Line Dancing

  • These dances go back to the days of Dick Clark, The Geater and The Guy with the Goods.  We’ll groove to the music of the 60’s & 70’s learning the line dances from that same period, some of which are still enjoyed in clubs! This class is designed to focus on memory and sequencing, and is low to medium impact.

Introduction to Spanish

  • Vamanos!  You know you’ve been wanting to learn a new language for ages!  Think of the places you can visit, the business relations you can improve, the restaurants you can have the insider scoop on!  This small, entertaining instructor-led course will give you a jump start on speaking Spanish right away.  It’s so much more effective and organic than those language apps.  Take the plunge!

Change Your Posture, Relieve Your Pain

  • Pain is a symptom of a larger problem, and that problem is often our posture. When we experience pain, that is the body’s way of telling us that we are off balance and misaligned. Learn about posture therapy, a proven method that gets to the root of your chronic pain by returning your body to proper alignment. This class is a lecture format with a few simple, optional stretches. Pain-free living begins when you stop treating the symptom and start treating the cause.
