  1. Tai Chi Basic 1: Walking Meditation

    March 20, 2019, 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM @ Community Room

    This class will introduce a series of Tai Chi walking poses. This set of movements requires that your stepping becomes steady over time. It continuously tests and improves your sense of physical and energetic balance through your legs and feet. As you develop the strength and energy in your legs, each move will naturally transfer into your cores and arms, and then form a well-coordinated entire body movement. It is an accessible Mind-Body practice for soothing stress and maximizing function. Hongyi Lan, PhD-Instructor Hongyi has practiced Tai Chi Chuan for more than 25 years. She first learned Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan and then learned Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan from Master Liang Shan. Hongyi believes Tai Chi/QiGong is an ideal mind-body exercise for everyone. Master Lan is a scholar and teacher devoted to spreading these ancient exercises to as many people as possible.
