The practice of tai chi is rooted in Chinese culture and combines specific physical movements with mind and spirit. At Community United Church of Christ, we practice gentle tai chi to music; movements are slow and can be adapted to sitting or standing. The gentle practice is particularly helpful to those working on their balance, or those with joint pain. After 30 minutes of practice, the group spends some time socializing – another way to connect mind, body and spirit.
Currently the tai chi group is meeting Tuesdays, 9:30-10:30, in the Vaughan Fellowship Hall, a large room which offers space for distancing. Doors can be opened to keep fresh air circulating. Masking is optional.
Novices are welcome; the group will happily show you the movements and the pace is slow.
