Tai Chi is back

at senior center

A new six-week series of Tai Chi classes will start soon at Hendricks County Senior Services.

The classes are conducted 2 p.m. on Wednesdays. The one-hour class is done in six-week sessions.

Tai Chi is an internal martial art used to improve health. Movements flow slowly from one to the next as participants move the hands, feet, and shift weight. It’s a moving meditation. Studies show Tai Chi may help reduce stress, improve balance, improve heart and immune health, increase flexibility, improve mood, and energize participants.

Tai Chi Easy is a modified Tai Chi program that allows for easy application into a daily routine. Tai Chi Easy can be learned by anyone, in any physical condition, anywhere. No experience is necessary and no special equipment is needed. The movements will be standing, not moving the feet.  

Participants will learn five Tai Chi movements: Qi Gong breathing exercises, self hand and foot massage, meditation, health, and relaxation tips.

Cost for the Tai Chi Easy six-week session is $30. Payment must be made in advance. A minimum class size is required. To register call 745-4303.
