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 advanced 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).
Meet under the Park Sign at the South Entrance to the old Deti Stadium.
There is a portable restroom available.
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 of the session will be Qi Gong Breathing exercises for everyone.
- Improving our efficiency in breathing will help all of us maintain better health and wellness during this pandemic.
* In the second part, we will usually divide the group according to their preferences for either learning
the Yang-style 24 Basic Form or the Yang-style 44 Form.
Beginners are welcome.
Wear comfortable clothes and flat sole shoes.
