PRACTICE SESSIONS--FRIDAYS, November 28th and December 19th        10:00AM TO 11:00AM

THESE ARE SEPARATE PRACTICE SESSIONS – AND A GREAT REFRESHER

1 HOUR CLASS - pay-as-you-go: $5/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.

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.

PRACTICE SESSION-- Friday, December 19th        10:00AM TO 11:00AM

THIS IS A PRACTICE SESSION – AND A GREAT REFRESHER

1 HOUR CLASS - $5.00

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.
