STAUNTON, VA (09/15/2011)(readMedia)-- Due to printing and distribution issues, the Staunton Parks & Recreation Fall 2011 Brochure has postponed some class start dates, to give folks a chance to sign up for these great offerings.

Tai Chi

Tai Chi offers many great health benefits, from muscle strength to flexibility, all with gentle, slow motions. A graceful form of exercise that can be practiced in a group, or alone with nothing but your own body. This class is being offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6pm-7pm for 6 weeks. The cost is $62 (that's just $5 a class) and it takes place at Nelson Street Teen Center. To see some actual Tai Chi moves, go HERE.

Tai Chi for Health

Explore this time-proven branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine which combines gentle, continuous movement with Qigong breathwork for self-healing. This practice will increase range of motion, improve balance, strengthen the body, and calm your "monkey mind". It also employs a teaching method which breaks down each movement into small steps which makes it easy to learn. Suitable for any fitness level- it can even be performed in a chair!
