What is Tai Chi? This martial art and the associated Qi Gong warmup exercises are practiced worldwide for health improvement. Scientific research shows that the practice of Tai Chi prevents or improves many chronic conditions including heart disease, diabetes and arthritis. In addition, it improves balance, immunity, and reduces stress.
Yang-style simplified Tai Chi Chuan has been led by volunteer instructors in Laramie since 1993. The original founding members were
Jeanne Hurd and Pam Morrow.
Sessions continue weekly providing learning opportunities in Tai Chi and
Qi Gong for beginners and experienced practitioners.
Laramie Tai Chi and Tea Sessions are scheduled
every Wednesday from 1:30 to 2:30 pm.
Meetings are held outside in
LARAMIE PLAINSMAN PARK (15th and Reynolds).
Park on Reynolds Street and meet at the North End of the old Deti Stadium.
No Tai Chi fees will be collected and there will be no handouts.
6-to-10 foot social distancing will be enforced
and face masks are optional.
Each session will be divided into two parts.
* The first part will be Qi Gong exercises for everyone.
* In the second part, we will practice
the Yang-style simplified Tai Chi Chuan 24 Postures together
and then divide the group either by their levels of proficiency
or by their preferences for practicing the 24 Basic Form
or the Standard 44 Form.
Beginners are welcome.
Wear comfortable clothes and flat sole shoes
