Tai Chi and Qi Gong for Individuals with Challenges
The Gallery will be closed to the public from November 27th to November 30th for an Exhibition Changeover and a Private Event
A combination of Tai Chi and Qi Gong, involving simple, gentle movements with mindful breathing. These exercises can help relieve all forms of stress – physical, mental, emotional – restoring the mind and body to a state of calm and wellbeing. The grounding effect of the
exercises helps with feeling balanced on a physical level as well as helps promote a feeling of self-worth, having purpose, and being connected to the world at large. Sessions typically end with a short meditation session.
Aligned with my philosophy of giving back to the community, I am happy to provide this class FREE of cost or have a minimum donation of $5 towards JCHAC’s conservation efforts.
