Experience Tai Chi Easy™ Classes

Release Date: Thursday, September 10, 2009

PHILADELPHIA, PA – Come experience the Chinese healing art of Tai Chi and its "mother" Qigong (Chi Kung) at Tai Chi Easy™ classes at Chestnut Hill College. These one hour classes, designed to help beginners discover the world of “moving meditation,” will be offered on Thursday mornings at 10:30 a.m. and Thursday evenings at 5:00 p.m. from September 10 through November 12, 2009 in the Middleton Parlor in the Rogers Center. Father Al Smith, OSFS, a practitioner member of the National Qigong Association with more than 200 hours of teacher training from the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi, will lead the class.

Tai Chi can provide relaxation, help participants focus on the moment, and allow their energy to flow more freely. The movements (that can even be done while sitting) are easy and fun to do. Course participants are asked to wear loose fitting clothing to class.

Tai Chi Easy™ will be offered at $10 per class. For more information or to sign-up, please contact Mary Elizabeth Clark, SSJ, in the Sisters of St. Joseph Earth Center at 215.248.7225 or e-mail mclark@ssjphila.org.
