NEW SESSION BEGAN FRIDAY, October 3rd         10:00AM TO 11:00AM

THIS IS AN 8-WEEK SESSION – AND A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR B EGINNERS TO JOIN THE GROUP

1 HOUR CLASS - $40 FOR 8 WEEKS PAYABLE AT FIRST CLASS OR $8/CLASS

Tai Chi is a gentle ancient practice that originated in China. For centuries, the Chinese have understood the immense health benefits of Tai Chi.  Now east meets west as Tai Chi is being recognized for its unique energy and power by Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, the Arthritis Foundation, and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) – just to name a few. 

Tai Chi has been shown in scientific studies to reduce pain, stiffness and fatigue, and improve physical function, muscle strength, flexibility/mobility, and balance.  It also promotes correct body posture, integrates body and mind, relieves stress, and improves Qi (life energy).  It is a progressive exercise in the sense that no matter at what age one starts, skills can be developed. Once you start you can continue to progress to a higher level for the rest of your life.

We begin our practice with Qigong exercises (often called Meditation in Motion), a warm up and cool down. We’ll also learn a NEW PROGRAM and continue to practice our ongoing program with a combination of basic and advanced movements.  Our focus includes breathing techniques, visualization, and imagery. It is a fun and relaxed class!

No special equipment is needed – just comfortable shoes and clothing.  As always, participants should check with their doctor before participating in any physical program.

FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO SIGN UP FOR CLASS, CALL OR EMAIL LINDA DEMEDIO.

Those nine months saw many exciting events such the Battle of Brandywine, the largest and longest battle of the Revolution, the battle of Germantown, the British occupation of Philadelphia, the American army’s encampment in our own backyard—the New Hanover Township area and much more.

This class will cover these nine months in detail using lectures, maps, and power point.  Presented by Michael T. Snyder.

    Contact: Robyn Train   610-828-0441   rtrain@mclinc.org
   

NEW SESSION BEGAN FRIDAY, October 3rd         10:00AM TO 11:00AM

THIS IS AN 8-WEEK SESSION – AND A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR B EGINNERS TO JOIN THE GROUP

1 HOUR CLASS - $40 FOR 8 WEEKS PAYABLE AT FIRST CLASS OR $8/CLASS

Tai Chi is a gentle ancient practice that originated in China. For centuries, the Chinese have understood the immense health benefits of Tai Chi.  Now east meets west as Tai Chi is being recognized for its unique energy and power by Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, the Arthritis Foundation, and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) – just to name a few. 

Tai Chi has been shown in scientific studies to reduce pain, stiffness and fatigue, and improve physical function, muscle strength, flexibility/mobility, and balance.  It also promotes correct body posture, integrates body and mind, relieves stress, and improves Qi (life energy).  It is a progressive exercise in the sense that no matter at what age one starts, skills can be developed. Once you start you can continue to progress to a higher level for the rest of your life.

We begin our practice with Qigong exercises (often called Meditation in Motion), a warm up and cool down. We’ll also learn a NEW PROGRAM and continue to practice our ongoing program with a combination of basic and advanced movements.  Our focus includes breathing techniques, visualization, and imagery. It is a fun and relaxed class!

No special equipment is needed – just comfortable shoes and clothing.  As always, participants should check with their doctor before participating in any physical program.

FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO SIGN UP FOR CLASS, CALL OR EMAIL LINDA DEMEDIO.

The Revolutionary War Comes to Southeastern Pennsylvania – The Fall of 1777

By September 1777 the American War for Independence came to southeastern Pennsylvania, when a British army entered Chester County, in its bid to capture Philadelphia. The Brits would be with us June 1778. 

Those nine months saw many exciting events such the Battle of Brandywine, the largest and longest battle of the Revolution, the battle of Germantown, the British occupation of Philadelphia, the American army’s encampment in our own backyard—the New Hanover Township area and much more.

This class will cover these nine months in detail using lectures, maps, and power point.  Presented by Michael T. Snyder. 

There is a registration fee of $60.00 and this fee covers all 6 sessions.

NEW SESSION BEGAN FRIDAY, October 3rd         10:00AM TO 11:00AM

THIS IS AN 8-WEEK SESSION – AND A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR B EGINNERS TO JOIN THE GROUP

1 HOUR CLASS - $40 FOR 8 WEEKS PAYABLE AT FIRST CLASS OR $8/CLASS

Tai Chi is a gentle ancient practice that originated in China. For centuries, the Chinese have understood the immense health benefits of Tai Chi.  Now east meets west as Tai Chi is being recognized for its unique energy and power by Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, the Arthritis Foundation, and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) – just to name a few. 

Tai Chi has been shown in scientific studies to reduce pain, stiffness and fatigue, and improve physical function, muscle strength, flexibility/mobility, and balance.  It also promotes correct body posture, integrates body and mind, relieves stress, and improves Qi (life energy).  It is a progressive exercise in the sense that no matter at what age one starts, skills can be developed. Once you start you can continue to progress to a higher level for the rest of your life.

We begin our practice with Qigong exercises (often called Meditation in Motion), a warm up and cool down. We’ll also learn a NEW PROGRAM and continue to practice our ongoing program with a combination of basic and advanced movements.  Our focus includes breathing techniques, visualization, and imagery. It is a fun and relaxed class!

No special equipment is needed – just comfortable shoes and clothing.  As always, participants should check with their doctor before participating in any physical program.

FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO SIGN UP FOR CLASS, CALL OR EMAIL LINDA DEMEDIO.

The Revolutionary War Comes to Southeastern Pennsylvania – The Fall of 1777

By September 1777 the American War for Independence came to southeastern Pennsylvania, when a British army entered Chester County, in its bid to capture Philadelphia. The Brits would be with us June 1778. 

Those nine months saw many exciting events such the Battle of Brandywine, the largest and longest battle of the Revolution, the battle of Germantown, the British occupation of Philadelphia, the American army’s encampment in our own backyard—the New Hanover Township area and much more.

This class will cover these nine months in detail using lectures, maps, and power point.  Presented by Michael T. Snyder. 

There is a registration fee of $60.00 and this fee covers all 6 sessions.

Movie Night
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2014  5:30-8PM

Refreshments compliments of Giant Food Stores, Plymouth Meeting.
This is a free program sponsored by the Friends of the William Jeanes Library.
The Jeanes Library will be showing the 2013 film The Lunchbox, directed and written by Ritesh Batra. Batra created a world sensation in 2013 with this wonderful film, a bittersweet romantic comedy as well as a sensitive portrait of the city of Mumbai, torn between tradition and progress. This is the young director's first feature film, with the storyline driven by a mistaken delivery in Mumbai's famously efficient lunchbox delivery system which connects a young housewife to an older man in the dusk of his life as they build a fantasy world together through notes in the lunchbox.
The program will be held in the Community Room and includes a 15 minute introduction and a half hour discussion afterwards. The discussion will be led by local resident and "film buff," Liz Zietz.

    Contact: Robyn Train   610-828-0441   rtrain@mclinc.org
   

NEW SESSION BEGAN FRIDAY, October 3rd         10:00AM TO 11:00AM

THIS IS AN 8-WEEK SESSION – AND A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR B EGINNERS TO JOIN THE GROUP

1 HOUR CLASS - $40 FOR 8 WEEKS PAYABLE AT FIRST CLASS OR $8/CLASS

Tai Chi is a gentle ancient practice that originated in China. For centuries, the Chinese have understood the immense health benefits of Tai Chi.  Now east meets west as Tai Chi is being recognized for its unique energy and power by Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, the Arthritis Foundation, and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) – just to name a few. 

Tai Chi has been shown in scientific studies to reduce pain, stiffness and fatigue, and improve physical function, muscle strength, flexibility/mobility, and balance.  It also promotes correct body posture, integrates body and mind, relieves stress, and improves Qi (life energy).  It is a progressive exercise in the sense that no matter at what age one starts, skills can be developed. Once you start you can continue to progress to a higher level for the rest of your life.

We begin our practice with Qigong exercises (often called Meditation in Motion), a warm up and cool down. We’ll also learn a NEW PROGRAM and continue to practice our ongoing program with a combination of basic and advanced movements.  Our focus includes breathing techniques, visualization, and imagery. It is a fun and relaxed class!

No special equipment is needed – just comfortable shoes and clothing.  As always, participants should check with their doctor before participating in any physical program.

The Revolutionary War Comes to Southeastern Pennsylvania – The Fall of 1777

By September 1777 the American War for Independence came to southeastern Pennsylvania, when a British army entered Chester County, in its bid to capture Philadelphia. The Brits would be with us June 1778. 

Those nine months saw many exciting events such the Battle of Brandywine, the largest and longest battle of the Revolution, the battle of Germantown, the British occupation of Philadelphia, the American army’s encampment in our own backyard—the New Hanover Township area and much more.

This class will cover these nine months in detail using lectures, maps, and power point.  Presented by Michael T. Snyder. 

There is a registration fee of $60.00 and this fee covers all 6 sessions.

The Revolutionary War Comes to Southeastern Pennsylvania – The Fall of 1777

By September 1777 the American War for Independence came to southeastern Pennsylvania, when a British army entered Chester County, in its bid to capture Philadelphia. The Brits would be with us June 1778. 

Those nine months saw many exciting events such the Battle of Brandywine, the largest and longest battle of the Revolution, the battle of Germantown, the British occupation of Philadelphia, the American army’s encampment in our own backyard—the New Hanover Township area and much more.

This class will cover these nine months in detail using lectures, maps, and power point.  Presented by Michael T. Snyder. 

There is a registration fee of $60.00 and this fee covers all 6 sessions.
