Tai Chi for Arthritis and General Health

January 21 @ 5:15 pm - 6:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 5:15 pm on Tuesday, repeating until May 26, 2020

On January 14, we will begin learning Tai Chi for Arthritis, a short Sun Style Tai Chi form developed by Dr. Paul Lam, an Australian family physician and winner of several Tai Chi competitions. Though Dr. Lam originally developed it for arthritis, it is good for everyone. It is an enjoyable and rewarding form to do. This particular form has been the subject of research and demonstrated that it has significant health benefits. Read more information. As well, we will learn numerous Tai Chi practices, Chi Kung), Tai Chi basics, and Taoist meditation.

Tai Chi will meet Tuesdays, 5:15-6:30 p.m. in the Hanke Room. Everyone is welcome; participants do not have to be Ethical Society members. We ask for at most a $5 donation to support the Ethical Society.

Don Beere has been learning, practicing and teaching Tai Chi for over 40 years. He taught it as a credit-bearing course while a faculty member at Central Michigan University and he sponsored 21 yearly Tai Chi workshops led by three different Tai Chi Masters—Hubert H. Lui, Dr. Zaiwen Shen, and Chungliang “Al” Huang. Don has been a certified Tai Chi for Arthritis instructor. You can see his background at www.donaldbeere.com.
