Are you looking for an hour of calm in your busy schedule?

Hope Lutheran Church offers three classes each week in the ancient Chinese practices of tai chi and qigong. Tai chi is often referred to as “mind/body exercise.” Its slow, gentle movements are suitable for people of all ages and abilities. It has been found beneficial for people with arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, and other conditions. The “mind” component of tai chi practice promotes calm and mental balance.  Qigong practice focuses on movement that helps increase the flow of "qi" -- energy -- through the body.  This practice can be done seated.

Class Schedule (as of September 2022):

Tuesdays, 7:15-8:15 PM – Beginner-Plus Tai Chi
This class is open to all – beginners and those with some experience.  We will focus on the basics of tai chi and qigong practices.
