Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Do you work at a desk all day? Are you worried your muscles will continue to tighten and restrict your mobility unless you find a way to move and stretch regularly? Let's move together. Learn some Tai Chi exercises and principles, then eat Chinese food after! (optional)*

*Meetup event for the Stress Relief for Professionals Using Tai Chi Meetup Group. Open to others and friends!

This event is OUTDOORS under a sheltered area. Dress warmly. Bring gloves, thick socks, toques, wind-breakers.

We practice outdoors for many reasons including;

  • Eeasier to stay present
  • Encourages movement!
  • Fresh air - which we don't often get, especially in winter.
  • Increase vitamin D; boosts mood, strengthens bones, wards off disease (see Harvard Health for details)
  • Natural light helps the winter blues (Seasonal Affective Disorder, SAD) (UC Davis, 2017)


SCHEDULE

11:00 - 11:30: Meet & Greet The instructor and experienced students will introduce themselves and their personal tai chi health stories. Time permitting, we'd like participants to quickly introduce themselves* which will help participants start conversations throughout the day.

*E.g., name, profession, why you came to the event today - if you're shy, send me a message and we'll alter the option.

11:30 - 11:45: Introduction to Tai Chi What is it? Where did it come from? How can it be used?
