Tai Chi in the Garden (Four Wednesdays, May 14, 21, 28, June 4, 10-11am)) (Class is Full)
Al Smith
Practitioner Member, National Qigong Association

Do you want to reduce stress, quiet down, move in a slow, balanced way, and cultivate energy? In the beautiful outdoor setting of the Morris Arboretum we will share in the practice of the healing art of Tai Chi. Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese tradition that today is practiced as a graceful form of exercise. It involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner accompanied by deep breathing. Often described as meditation in motion, Tai Chi promotes serenity through gentle, flowing movements. We will begin with Tai Chi EasyTM Level 1, no previous experience is needed. Al Smith has over 200 hours of teacher training from the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi. Please wear loose-fitting clothing to the class.
