What are Tai Chi & Qigong?
Tai Chi & Qigong offer a simple, yet powerful way to relax and take care of yourself physically, spiritually, and emotionally.
Tai chi is a Chinese tradition of gentle, flowing exercise and stretching accompanied by deep breathing, keeping the body in constant motion.
Qigong is the Chinese mind/body art of cultivating, circulating and building energy through physical movement, posture control, and meditation.

This series of 6 classes at Pequot Library will take place outdoors on the expansive front lawn where we can connect more directly with nature. Each class is comprised of classic Tai Chi & Qigong warm-ups, gentle and dynamic flowing movements, and guided meditations. Classes will work to increase flexibility, strength, and immune system, as well as quiet the mind and reduce stress. You will also learn the benefit of standing meditation to improve your sleep and an easy before bedtime routine comprised of simple forms and self-massage.

All my classes encourage the philosophy of not pushing the body but instead treating the body and mind with gentleness and compassion.
No prior experience is required and all ages are welcome. Tea will be served after practice.
