Tai Chi and Qi gong - Series

Tuesdays: Nov. 8th & 22nd

11 AM-11:45 AM

The ancient practices of Tai Chi and Qi gong combine slow, deliberate movements, meditation, and breathing exercises bringing relaxation, peace and balance to mind, body and spirit and can also send that same energy out in all directions to all beings. Join us for a series of classes that introduces people to the first several movements of a Yang-style form. 

Regular practice can develop inspiration, confidence and self-awareness, promote healthy breathing, improve vitality and cultivate harmony with Nature!

Instructor: Master Kathleen M. Gill, Ph.D. is a retired clinical psychologist with forty years of experience in stress management and health promotion. She was granted the title in 2014 by her Grandmaster William C. C. Chen. She tells her clients and students that the best method of relaxation is the one you practice every day - and taiji quan (Tai Chi) and qigong is that method for her.
