11:00am-12:15pm $83 for 6 class series Preregister please.
Experience joy thru movement as we practice the simple and gentle movements of T’ai Chi Chih, a moving meditation. The purpose of T’ai Chi Chih is to activate, circulate and balance the intrinsic energy of the body known as chi. Many physical, mental, emotional and spiritual benefits have been reported as a result of this practice. They include regulated blood pressure, weight and stress reduction, increased balance, mental alertness, energy, creativity and peak performance. Clinical research studies from UCLA have shown that T’ai Chi Chih has significantly enhanced the immune systems and sleep patterns of the elderly as reduced the effects of depression. Originated by Justin Stone in 1974, the full form consists of 19 movements and 1 pose that can be performed standing or sitting. Individuals of any ability and most any age (preschoolers through centurions) have experienced success.
Course instructor: Dr. Janet M. Oussaty is an accredited T’ai Chi Chih and Seijaku (Advanced T’ai Chi Chih) Instructor who has been teaching TCC for over 14 years at various centers including Kean University. In addition to teaching courses, she mentors candidates in preparation for T’ai Chi Chih teacher accreditation.

ROLL INTO YOUR WEEK-END AT YOGA CENTRAL
Discover what YOGA on a roller can do for you
Friday, July 17, 6:00-7:15PM with Ana Giametta, RYT
($18 FOR THE CLASS AND $16 FOR THE ROLLER*)
Foam rollers have been used as therapeutic props for a long time and the benefits are many. Self-myofascial release is a means of stretching and relaxing contracted muscles. It improves blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulates the stretch reflex in muscles, reducing pain and increasing the range of motion in virtually all parts of your body. This session will show you how to give yourself a deep tissue massage and relax deeply. No previous experience is necessary. *Please let us know if you will be purchasing a roller.
