Enhance your Summer with Tai Chi: Healthy Acadia Offers Two Free Courses
Brooksville/Stonington. Summer can be a hectic time of juggling work, family and social obligations. Why add tai chi to your busy schedule? To help create balance. Tai chi is the perfect antidote to our fast-paced modern culture; it is an ancient Chinese practice that incorporates slow, gentle controlled movement that improves relaxation, flexibility and muscle strength.
Healthy Acadia is pleased to announce that two free eight-week “Tai Chi for Health” courses will be held in Brooksville and Stonington beginning in June. While classes are free, a $5 donation is suggested.
These evidenced-based courses will be led by Healthy Acadia volunteer Mia Kanazawa. After a 20-year hiatus, Mia returned to tai chi by taking a Tai Chi for Health course offered by Healthy Acadia last year. Impressed by the course’s step-by-step teaching method, which makes tai chi so easy to learn, she became a certified Tai Chi for Health Institute instructor. “I want to help Healthy Acadia share the many health benefits of this program with others,” stated Mia, “Tai Chi for Health can be enjoyed by all ages, at all levels of physical ability!”
The Brooksville course will be held at the Brooksville Community Center, 1 Black Bear Road, Brooksville, on Mondays, June 5 through July 31, from 9-10am. There will be no class on July 3.
The Stonington course will be held at the Island Community Center, 2 Memorial Lane, Stonington on Wednesdays, June 7 through July 26, from 1 – 2 pm.
