Wellness Exercises

Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan Wellness Exercises

I wanted to share with you some Wellness Exercises from Grandmaster Yang Jun and the Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan Association. These simple tajichaun exercises will support your immune system, they are easy to follow, balanced on both sides and designed to be done in a small space. See  the links below.

Grandmaster Yang Jun says “Doctors in China who are on the front lines of infectious disease containment and mitigation are using Traditional Chinese Medicine and tai chi to boost patients’ immunity to fight COVID19. A UCLA research study published in the Journal of American Geriatrics in 2007 showed that practicing tai chi might have a strong effect on the immune system because it manages to bring exercise, relaxation, and meditation together in ‘one behavioral intervention,’ the researchers said. They theorized that tai chi enhances T-cell (the white blood cells that fight infection) activity and in this way boost immunity…Even in cases where people are confined at home, it is possible to practice some simple movements and help the immune system stay strong.”

Fit Over Forty – March 2020

As most of you know, I broke my femur in January. I will be recovering at home until mid April and then must have extensive rehab to my affected leg. I am hoping to return to my full teaching schedule but do not have an exact timeline.  My plan is to have a full teaching schedule at Brier Stone (Clarke County) this summer and to return to Ida Lee as soon as i can and return to Clarke County Parks and Rec beginning of  October 2020. 
I am planning on teaching 4 Feldenkrais Method Awareness through Movement series of classes while I am recuperating. M/W 11am, Tuesday 1pm and Monday or Wednesday at 5:00pm. Each class will be dependent on enrollment – I need 4 people to hold the class.  I am encouraging online enrollment but can have maybe 5-6 here at Brier Stone in the living room if you prefer. $40 per session of 5 classes – you may make up at other session, but please sign up for your preferred time. Let me know if you are interested and which class you will usually attend.

*You may sign up for the class and pay at a later date for the M/W 5pm and the Tuesday 1pm after we see if it is a go.
