T’ai Chi Chih: “Joy thru Movement”

Posted: Thursday, March 9, 2017

Achieving balance in today’s hectic, stressful times is a difficult proposition. Victory Noll Center is offering a chance to reach that life balance with “T’ai Chi Chih: Joy thru Movement” beginning April 4.

Developed by Justin Stone in 1974, T’ai Chi Chih is a series of 19 slow, gentle movements and one pose dedicated to activate, circulate and balance the vital, universal energy that flows within each person. T’ai Chi Chih is often thought of as a moving meditation because of the calming effect on the mind and emotions, and the release of tension throughout the body.  It is not a martial art. There is no awkward bending or stretching. The movements are accessible to people of all ages. It can even be performed while seated.

The leader for the classes is Jan Parker, who is an accredited T’ai Chi Chih teacher. She also teaches wellness practices for retreat centers, service and healthcare organizations, churches, and schools. Classes are held Tuesdays from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m. The course runs from April 4 through May 23. Please register by March 31. The cost of the class is $64. Make checks payable to Jan Parker.

Victory Noll Center is located at 1900 W. Park Drive.
