Are you interested in learning Tai Chi?
Great news! Fit Inspired Living in Downtown Cary is collaborating with NC Taoist Ronen Divon to start a Tai Chi class starting this November!
What is Tai Chi?
Created in ancient China as a form of martial arts, Tai Chi is practiced these days mostly as a slow form of exercise, aimed at promoting health and wellness. There are several different schools of Tai Chi. The one we will be focused on is called the Short 24 moves Yang Form.
Who is this for?
Tai Chi is for anyone who has an interest in a different form of slow-pace, energy cultivating, exercise. Ages 12 to 120.
There is no need to be in great shape, flexible, or have previous knowledge.
No previous experience is required. Classes include warm-up, practice of the basic fundamental movesof the Yang form (short), related breathing techniques, as well as the philosophy behind the practice (Dao and I-Ching).
When, where and how much?
It takes 14 weeks to learn the basics of the Short Yang Form. We will meet most Saturdays with few exceptions that will be advertised in advance.
First class is on Sat, Nov 17th. 11:30am.
Each session is approx. 45 min long (some sessions may run a little longer but no more than 60 min).
The classes are offered at Fit Inspired Living, located at 145 W. Chatham St., Cary.
RSVP is requested as space is limited.
Cost is $12/session if paid in advance ($168 for the 14 weeks series), or $15 if drop-in.
