Suitable for seniors and non-seniors
 
What is Tai Chi and what are the benefits?
 
Tai Chi is a type of Chinese martial arts. It was developed in China over 400 years ago for health and self-defense. Tai Chi movements are a combination of slow motions and Qi Gong meditation. These movements can be performed while standing or seated for people with limited mobility. Practicing Tai Chi can improve one’s flexibility, balance, muscular strength, and self-defense skills. It can also help reduce stress and improve the body’s immune system. These benefits are the reasons why it has become such a popular sport throughout the world.
 
What is Healthy Tai Chi and what are the benefits?
 
Healthy Tai Chi consists of slow individual movements taken from elements of regular Tai Chi and developed by the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine's Professor. These slow individual movements with Qi are therapeutic in nature and target specific body areas and maladies. Since these are separate movements, people will not need to memorize long forms as they had to in the past with regular Tai Chi, and people can choose to stand or sit in chairs to perform the exercises. Practicing Healthy Tai Chi can improve one’s arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, immune system, flexibility, balance, and muscular strength.

Instructor: Master Ted Peng
 
Master Ted Peng has been practicing Tai Chi for over 30 years and has been teaching Tai Chi for about 10 years in the US. Master Peng has certificates for Tai Chi 7th level; he is also a certified National Coach of R.O.C. Sports Federation.
 
Please call (845)-352-5700 X244 or stop by the reference desk on the 2nd floor. Wear loose fitting clothing and sneakers. Check with your health care professional before begining any exercise regimen. Adults only. Registration Begins Oct.1.

Healthy Tai Chi Session 3
9:30 AM - 10:30 AM

Mondays, 9:30 AM – 10:30 AM

Oct. 28, Nov. 4, 18, 25

Suitable for seniors and non-seniors
 
What is Tai Chi and what are the benefits?
 
Tai Chi is a type of Chinese martial arts. It was developed in China over 400 years ago for health and self-defense. Tai Chi movements are a combination of slow motions and Qi Gong meditation. These movements can be performed while standing or seated for people with limited mobility. Practicing Tai Chi can improve one’s flexibility, balance, muscular strength, and self-defense skills. It can also help reduce stress and improve the body’s immune system. These benefits are the reasons why it has become such a popular sport throughout the world.
 
What is Healthy Tai Chi and what are the benefits?
 
Healthy Tai Chi consists of slow individual movements taken from elements of regular Tai Chi and developed by the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine's Professor. These slow individual movements with Qi are therapeutic in nature and target specific body areas and maladies. Since these are separate movements, people will not need to memorize long forms as they had to in the past with regular Tai Chi, and people can choose to stand or sit in chairs to perform the exercises. Practicing Healthy Tai Chi can improve one’s arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, immune system, flexibility, balance, and muscular strength.

Instructor: Master Ted Peng
 
Master Ted Peng has been practicing Tai Chi for over 30 years and has been teaching Tai Chi for about 10 years in the US. Master Peng has certificates for Tai Chi 7th level; he is also a certified National Coach of R.O.C. Sports Federation.
 
Please call (845)-352-5700 X244 or stop by the reference desk on the 2nd floor. Wear loose fitting clothing and sneakers. Check with your health care professional before begining any exercise regimen. Adults only. Registration Begins Oct.1.

Healthy Living for your Brain & Body
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Presented by Jody Addeo, MPA, Community Engagement Manager for the Alzheimer’s Association in Rockland County.

At any age, there are lifestyle habits we can adopt to help maintain or even potentially improve our health. These habits may also help to keep our brains healthy as we age and possibly delay the onset of cognitive decline. This workshop covers four areas of lifestyle habits associated with healthy aging: Cognitive activity, exercise, diet/nutrition and social engagement. In each area, we will discuss what we know, drawing on current research, as well as what we can do — steps to take now to improve or maintain overall health in each area.

Registration begins Oct. 10.

World War I–the Great War-100 years after
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Presenter: Tom DeStefano teaches American History at Bergen Community College

2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. This program will cover the causes of World War I and the opposing alliances—the Triple Entente and the Triple Alliance. We will consider how the United States, originally a neutral nation, got involved in World War I, the Zimmerman Telegram and the role of trench warfare and how new military weapons—submarines, tanks, machine guns, and aeroplanes affected the outcome of the Great War and conflicts to follow. President Woodrow Wilson’s policy of non-intervention and peacemaking attempts during and after the Treaty of Versailles and the lost generation of German, French and English men will round out the program. Registration begins Oct. 10.

 

Please call (845)-352-5700 X244 or stop by the reference desk on the 2nd floor.

The instrumentation is pure acoustic and features Ken Harten on the fiddle, Perry Paletta on mandolin, Bill Reiner on guitar and vocals, Vin Warner on stand-up bass and Pete Dunphy on drums and percussion.

A stout broth of jigs, reels and other traditional Celtic tunes spiced by modern hits of the Pogues and Waterboys along with some Classic Rock & Country Covers. Great vocals and electric energy make this band a must hear!

Healthy Tai Chi Session 3

Oct. 28, Nov. 4, 18, 25

Suitable for seniors and non-seniors
 
What is Tai Chi and what are the benefits?
 
Tai Chi is a type of Chinese martial arts. It was developed in China over 400 years ago for health and self-defense. Tai Chi movements are a combination of slow motions and Qi Gong meditation. These movements can be performed while standing or seated for people with limited mobility. Practicing Tai Chi can improve one’s flexibility, balance, muscular strength, and self-defense skills. It can also help reduce stress and improve the body’s immune system. These benefits are the reasons why it has become such a popular sport throughout the world.
 
What is Healthy Tai Chi and what are the benefits?
 
Healthy Tai Chi consists of slow individual movements taken from elements of regular Tai Chi and developed by the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine's Professor. These slow individual movements with Qi are therapeutic in nature and target specific body areas and maladies. Since these are separate movements, people will not need to memorize long forms as they had to in the past with regular Tai Chi, and people can choose to stand or sit in chairs to perform the exercises. Practicing Healthy Tai Chi can improve one’s arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, immune system, flexibility, balance, and muscular strength.

Instructor: Master Ted Peng
 
Master Ted Peng has been practicing Tai Chi for over 30 years and has been teaching Tai Chi for about 10 years in the US. Master Peng has certificates for Tai Chi 7th level; he is also a certified National Coach of R.O.C. Sports Federation.
 
Please call (845)-352-5700 X244 or stop by the reference desk on the 2nd floor. Wear loose fitting clothing and sneakers. Check with your health care professional before begining any exercise regimen. Adults only. Registration Begins Oct.1.

What is Tai Chi and what are the benefits?
 
Tai Chi is a type of Chinese martial arts. It was developed in China over 400 years ago for health and self-defense. Tai Chi movements are a combination of slow motions and Qi Gong meditation. These movements can be performed while standing or seated for people with limited mobility. Practicing Tai Chi can improve one’s flexibility, balance, muscular strength, and self-defense skills. It can also help reduce stress and improve the body’s immune system. These benefits are the reasons why it has become such a popular sport throughout the world.
 
What is Healthy Tai Chi and what are the benefits?
 
Healthy Tai Chi consists of slow individual movements taken from elements of regular Tai Chi and developed by the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine's Professor. These slow individual movements with Qi are therapeutic in nature and target specific body areas and maladies. Since these are separate movements, people will not need to memorize long forms as they had to in the past with regular Tai Chi, and people can choose to stand or sit in chairs to perform the exercises. Practicing Healthy Tai Chi can improve one’s arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, immune system, flexibility, balance, and muscular strength.
 
Instructor: Master Ted Peng
 
Master Ted Peng has been practicing Tai Chi for over 30 years and has been teaching Tai Chi for about 10 years in the US. Master Peng has certificates for Tai Chi 7th level; he is also a certified National Coach of R.O.C. Sports Federation.

What is Tai Chi and what are the benefits?
 
Tai Chi is a type of Chinese martial arts. It was developed in China over 400 years ago for health and self-defense. Tai Chi movements are a combination of slow motions and Qi Gong meditation. These movements can be performed while standing or seated for people with limited mobility. Practicing Tai Chi can improve one’s flexibility, balance, muscular strength, and self-defense skills. It can also help reduce stress and improve the body’s immune system. These benefits are the reasons why it has become such a popular sport throughout the world.
 
What is Healthy Tai Chi and what are the benefits?
 
Healthy Tai Chi consists of slow individual movements taken from elements of regular Tai Chi and developed by the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine's Professor. These slow individual movements with Qi are therapeutic in nature and target specific body areas and maladies. Since these are separate movements, people will not need to memorize long forms as they had to in the past with regular Tai Chi, and people can choose to stand or sit in chairs to perform the exercises. Practicing Healthy Tai Chi can improve one’s arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, immune system, flexibility, balance, and muscular strength.
