Health: Lunch Time Tai Chi Classes

El Paso Museum of History Presents Special Lunch Time Tai Chi Classes

Every Wednesday, beginning January 12th to March 23rd, 2011

Noon to 1:00 PM

Beginning on Wednesday, January 12th and continuing until March 23rd, 2011, the El Paso Museum of History will offer special lunch time classes in Tai Chi taught by Hsio-Ying Hines from Noon to 1:00 PM. Lose midweek work stress by relaxing with Tai Chi. It will make Friday come sooner!

Of the five major Tai Chi movements taught, the Yang style is the most popular because of its slow, graceful movements. Students will learn basic simplified Yang movements and twelve therapeutic Qi-Gong exercises. If you haven’t been to the museum to take Tai Chi, here is your chance to start. The movements are slow and easy and you can learn very quickly. Western scientists have established that Tai Chi and Qi-Gong can reduce hypertension, help diabetes and stress management, and ease arthritis.

Hsio-Ying Hines has been teaching Tai-chi at the Chinese Language School, and EPCC Northwest Campus Library Summer program since 2007. According to her students, she is very patient and makes you feel comfortable from the first lesson on. Ms. Hines will add interesting anecdotes of Chinese history as she teaches you the various movements.

Loose, comfortable clothing and athletic shoes are highly recommended for the class. Class size is limited to 20, so register early.

Program fee: $20.00 for non-members/$10.00 for members for the ten week course.
