Tai Chi society begins new round of classes

Web Lead

The Creston group of the Taoist Tai Chi Society internal arts of health again started beginner tai chi classes this month.

Tai Chi incorporates stretching and turning into a sequence of movements to effectively improve the health of body, mind and spirit. Benefits include improved circulation, balance and posture, increased strength and flexibility, and reduced stress. With regular practice, Tai Chi reaches deep inside the body to benefit the entire physiology as well as to restore the calmness and peace of mind that is often lost through the desires and anxieties of daily life.

The Taoist Tai Chi Society is a registered charity and this orientation is in keeping with the Taoist values of selflessness, compassion and service to others. For this reason, all instructors are volunteers and branches operate on a non-profit basis. Members also perform other services within the community and assist other charities whenever possible.

For more information, contact Lin Martin at creston@taoist.org or 250-866-5744.
