BREATHE LIFE TAI CHI has been serving Chicagoland communities for over 10 years. Over the recent years, my programing has expanded to focus on a broader reach of more communities I could bless through my custom designed programs for our current environment. Offerings still include In-Person training, but now with the option of Zoom. Many community establishments have enjoyed streaming my instructional videos, and others will combine their streaming experience with one or two Zoom classes for their patrons each month in addition to In-Person events!
This special class at BREATHE LIFE TAI CHI is specifically created for the community including library programs, park districts, corporate sessions, nature and historical sites. You will have the option to train IN-PERSON, ZOOM or ON DEMAND STREAMING classes taught by certified instructor, Erica Bough AND have access to her video library if you choose Zoom + Video so you can continue your practice on your own. The focus is on building strong Tai Chi principles. Adult class material is based on the Sun 73 Forms exploring principles including body structure of alignment and weight transference, and moving in a slow, continuous motion with gentle resistance. These principles contribute to strengthen deep stabilizer muscles resulting in decreased hip, back and knee pain, reduced anxiety and overall improved health.
