“The series of classes will focus on the five elements and circle forms of Tai Ji and how they may be used for personal health and healing,” said Randolph. “We will also work on breathing and stretching exercises. Because Tai Ji uses gentle flowing movements to reduce stress and improve balance, coordination and flexibility, it’s an excellent form of exercise and is appropriate for all ages.”
“Covenant Presbyterian is delighted to offer Tai Ji to the public,” said Ulrici, associate pastor of Covenant Presbyterian Church. “This ancient art form has been shown to promote relaxation and reduce high blood pressure. Plus, the discipline’s focus on mind, body and spirit is a perfect fit for us.”
