T’ai Chi Chih – Mindfulness in Motion: Stay Healthy, Strong & Relaxed with Jessica Lewis

Especially during these unprecedented circumstances, it’s a great idea to practice T’ai Chi Chih as often as possible for three well-documented immunity-boosting reasons:

  1. All T’ai Chi has analgesic effects plus it’s repeatedly been proven to improve overall health and mood
  2. All T’ai Chi qualifies as exercise
  3. But the American Medical Association, the Arthritis Foundation, and the Mayo Clinic have all endorsed T’ai Chi Chih specifically as an evidence-based MOVING mindfulness practice

So try T’ai Chi Chih, learn how fun and easy it can be to take care of yourself, and do your part to flatten the curve! In response to COVID19 attend any/all three virtual classroom options:

  • Mondays 11:00-12:00pm EST
  • Wednesdays 3:15-415pm EST
  • Thursdays 1:00pm-2:00pm EST
  • Location: Online via Zoom

Are you a Veteran? Attend for FREE!

T’ai Chi for Veterans is a new federal program from the VA Community Care Network.

Calm is Also Contagious: Mindful Strategies for Managing Fear and Anxiety

With so many things that are outside of our control, this 1-hour workshop is a continuation of Karen’s first workshop. She will focus on the one thing we do have control over cultivating simple practices and strategies for managing our sense of well-being in the face of uncertainty. Let’s practice together and build-up our reserves of calm and resiliency as a community.

Karen Barwick, LPCMH incorporates the benefits of mindfulness by “helping people find ease with the process of being human.” To that end, mindfulness principles and practices have been a cornerstone of her personal and professional life for over a decade. Karen feels deep empathy for the challenges young people face and believes the “3 R’s” are no longer sufficiently adequate to help them pave a path towards their potential.
