Free Tai Chi Workshops at Tidal Falls Preserve
Hancock – Healthy Acadia, in Partnership with Frenchman Bay Conservancy, will be holding five “Tai Chi for Health” workshops this summer at the Tidal Falls Preserve in Hancock (72 Tidal Falls Road). Movements from Chen, Yang and Sun tai chi styles will be introduced to participants at this beautiful outdoor setting. The workshops will be held on Saturdays July 21 and 28, from 3pm to 4pm, and on Wednesdays, July 18, 25, and August 1 from 5:15pm to 6:15pm. While the workshops are free, a $5 donation is suggested.
Nina Zeldin and Julie Daigle, Tai Chi for Health Institute certified instructors and Healthy Acadia staff members, will be leading the workshops. Participants will practice gentle, easy to learn mind-body exercises that simultaneously promote relaxation and energy. “The mission of Frenchman Bay Conservancy, and the purpose of tai chi are harmonious,” observed Nina. “The Conservancy works to protect ecosystems, lands and water for the benefit of all, and Tai Chi for Health works to protect our bodies and minds against any kind of mental or physical disease.”
“Tai Chi for Health” can be enjoyed by people of all ages, at all levels of physical ability. Residents and visitors alike are encouraged to join in for any or all of these workshops at the Tidal Falls Preserve overlooking the scenic reversing falls.
