Tai chi is a traditional Chinese exercise which has a wide range of clinically proven benefits including building strength, flexibility, balance and reducing stress. It is low impact, and can therefore be enjoyed by a variety of age groups and ability levels.
I’m proud to announce that I will be offering new tai chi classes close to home — that is for me, Oconomowoc — starting on October 5th!
Parker’s Place Fitness has been a community staple for over 13 years, and are passionate about total health. This is their first foray into hosting a restorative practice like tai chi at their club, and I’m excited to be a part of it. They have a beautiful aerobics gym that we’ll be using for our classes, and when the weather is nice outside this fall, we may head out to their back lawn to train.
The classes will be a mixture of relaxation exercises, stretching, tai chi long forms, with a short meditation at the end. If students are interested, we may eventually introduce weapons like the tai chi sword and fan.
Class times will be Thursdays at 5pm and Saturdays at 8am. Cost is $50 per month for an individual, and $80 per month for a couple or family to attend.
If you are interested, head over to the Class Schedule page to learn more and sign up.
I hope to see you at class!

Join me this month for a tai chi relaxation session at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Brookfield. The church was kind enough to invite me again for their annual Women’s Day of Discovery, where you can take classes on healing arts but also diverse subjects such as cookie decorating, line dancing, and photography.
The session will be from 9:05 to 9:55 a.m. on Saturday, February 25th. Registration is open to members and non-members, and payment is through an offering in the amount of your choice. Visit their website to register online. I hope to see you there!
