Outdoor Tai Chi Chuan

Tai Chi Chuan is a traditional Chinese exercise system which has been widely practiced for preventative and therapeutic purposes. Occasionally referred to as “moving meditation” or “moving pole,” it is one of the most popular exercise programs of Chinese tradition for improving personal fitness for people of any age. The primary benefits include postural control and balance, flexibility, coordination, agility, strength and power, sensitivity and awareness, reaction time and confidence. The movements are practiced in the beginning as slow and relaxed to develop strength while eliminating tension and increasing energy. As you advance in practice the movements will offer a practical way to learn to work with others and still reduce stress and tension. Taught by Gold Tai Chi group head instructor, Elaine Schrade.

Face coverings will be optional for class sessions held outdoors and required for any sessions moved indoors due to weather conditions. Additional COVID-19 guidelines will be provided to participants prior to the first class.
