Healthy Tai Chi-FR
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Session I

October 9, 16, 23, 30

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 September 11.

Healthy Tai Chi-FR

Session I

October 9, 16, 23, 30

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 September 11.

200 Years of Jane Austen: The (After) Life of a Literary Icon-FR

Presenter: Jacqueline George is an Associate Professor of English at SUNY New Paltz who specializes in British Romantic Literature. Her research interests include the history of reading, Romantic subjectivity, and British prose fiction of the 1820s and 30s.

Two hundred years after her death, Jane Austen remains a consistent--and pervasive--presence in many aspects of popular culture. From literary mashups, to films, to endless merchandise, it is almost as if she never left us. In this talk, Prof. George will trace some of the major developments of Austen’s reputation, beginning with the immediate aftermath of her death, and probe the following questions: Why does Miss Austen remain with us? And what can her legacy tell us about literature, fame, and the relationships between books and people? Registration begins Sept. 26.

Healthy Tai Chi-FR

Session II

October 18, 25, Nov 1, 8

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 September 11.
