Take a Tai Chi class with Kim to help relieve stress!

Stress is the ultra-toxin. We use the word stress to describe every painful, frustrating, irritating, crazy-making, sickening and otherwise ugly energy.

Stress builds upon itself like a vicious cycle. Doing undesirable or repetitive tasks for too many hours is stressful. Not sleeping because you are stressed becomes more stressful. Skipping breakfast because you don’t feel well adds more stress. And so much of your day involves fast and rapid breathing which also adds stress. No wonder people are using a range of products provided by dispensary supplies in order to enjoy a session of de-stressing with cannabis.

Numerous studies confirm that easy and gentle Qi Gong and/or Tai Chi help reduce blood pressure, as well as help re-focus the mind away from pain or chronic disease frustrations.

November 5 is National Stress Awareness Day. Chronic stress is the catalyst for up to 80 percent of all illnesses. Deep breathing is a great start to calm your stressed body and active mind. Or try easy and gentle exercises like Qi Gong, Tai Chi, gentle yoga, NIA or meditation to learn how to cope with stress and help make yourself feel better. Worry less and live better! Remember, a bad attitude is like a flat tire – you can’t go anywhere until you change it!

As a Certified Tai Chi Instructor, my mission is teaching easy and gentle Tai Chi-QiGong is to bring comfort and ease into people’s daily lives. Teaching methods to improve breathing, posture, balance, and relaxation – in a fun and caring atmosphere is what I love to do, especially with older adults.

Currently, I offer Beginner at 11:30 a.m. or Intermediate classes at 10:00 a.m. at Cottonwood’s Phoenix Room on Friday mornings; or if you are a resident at Renaissance, the classes are at10:15 a.m. on Tuesday and Thursdays. I also teach classes in Chandler, Gilbert and Casa Grande.

Another option is to practice Tai Chi-QiGong in the comfort of your own home or hotel room with one of my two DVD’s – Hello Tai Chi, Goodbye Stress and Practice Easy Tai Chi with Kim Kubsch can be purchased on my website at www.SafeMovements.com or at any class. To celebrate National Stress Awareness day, during the month of November, either DVD is on sale for $15 each. The regular price is $20 each.
