Tai Ch’i at Landrum Presbyterian Church featuring Ed Kan of ICC

Published 3:38 pm Friday, February 24, 2012

Landrum Presbyterian Church invites the surrounding communities to join in an exercise program using Tai Ch’i. Ed Kan of Isothermal Community College is the instructor.
For those not familiar with Tai Ch’i, it is an ancient Chinese exercise consisting of slow and gentle body moves while breathing deeply. The gentle moves promote relaxation and relief from stress. Studies have shown it may help maintain bone health, provide beneficial relief from the symptoms of fibromyalgia and knee osteoarthritis, improve sleep quality, promote cardiopulmonary fitness through deep breathing and improve balance.
This exercise is for all age groups. The only requirements are that you must be able to stand and do very gentle stretching.
The next session will begin March 1, with two morning classes: Thursday and Saturday.  Both classes will begin at 10 a.m. This session there will also be a class on Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m.
To register, call 1-864-457-2761. Leave your name and number, and any questions you may have. Each session is limited to 12 participants to allow for one-on-one instruction.
Landrum Presbyterian Church is located at 404 Rutherford Street, directly across from the post office.
