Tai Chi/Qigong (Zoom Only)

OSH 201 / Non Credit
Course taught in: English
Locations: ARR

 

Course Description:  Tai Chi is a gentle and graceful movement class based on concepts originating in ancient China and is one of the most effective exercises for the health of the mind and body.  The ultimate purpose of Tai Chi is to cultivate the qi or life energy within us to flow smoothly and powerfully throughout the body.  Tai Chi improves balance and prevents falls. 

Qigong came before Tai Chi and is a practice of cultivating vital life-force through various techniques, including breathing techniques, posture and fluid movements.

The instructor spends approximately 30 min of the class practicing Qigong & approximately 30 min practicing Tai Chi.  Studies show that these practices aid with stress reduction, chronic pain, arthritis, diabetes, osteoporosis, and more.  Students are encouraged to wear loose comfortable clothing.
