Tai Chi is healing

Kim Kubsch

Teaching your body to relax allows it to turn off the stress hormones and tap into the “rest and digest” cycle that is important for your overall health. The healing activity of relaxation is one of the central principles of Tai Chi.

We modify or personalize the Tai Chi movements for our comfort and safety. It is not “one size fits all,” but all can participate and benefit from the slow, flowing movements of the body and breath. Participation can be either sitting or standing behind a chair or a combination of the two, all depending on what your body is asking for at that moment in time.

Easy & Gentle Tai Chi is held at Sun Lakes Country Club, Mirror Room, 25425 N. Sun Lakes Blvd., Sun Lakes. Thursdays, Mixed Level 10:45-11:45 a.m. New attendees are welcome anytime! Open to the public! October 4, November 15 and 22. $5 per class – drop-in anytime. All ages and abilities can enjoy the practice seated or standing.
