Wellness is the result of personal initiative, seeking a more optimal, holistic and balanced state of well being across five dimensions. This class is designed to empower the Baby Boomer to move forward with greater wellness and well-being by creating a holistic experience that nourishes each dimension. Historical yoga postures are evolved through application of current evidence-based knowledge to design a safe, effective and enjoyable practice. A slow, gentle and mindful approach is utilized with a focus on the physical breath and postures to calm the mind, balance the body, and cultivate self-awareness. The practice guided the student through:
* Simple techniques to facilitate proper breathing & breath awareness
* Slow, gentle movement integrated with breath & body awareness
* Gentle postures that promote healthy spine & improve posture and balance.
* Postures that gently strengthen muscles and promote functional range of motion
* Meditation to rest in the stillness of Being, & find the peace within
This gentle, yet challenging, practice is designed with the beginner level student in mind. Yoga props are incorporated and a thick mat is provided to facilitate the comfort, ease, and safety of your practice. Classes are taught in a small group format and offered in six-week sessions.

Tai Chi is a Chinese martial art made up of a series of slow, continuous movements that transition smoothly from one into the next. It is an "internal" martial art, which means it stresses the balance of both body and mind. So, this mindful exercise is also moving meditation. Benefits include:
* Improved posture, coordination, flexibility & muscle strength
* Better balance, less fall risk & stronger bones
* Enhanced circulation, heart & lung function
* Reduced stress, increased relaxation & focus
* Less pain and more energy
Many different classes are offered by instructors from the community at our facility. Instructors are private, qualified individuals who create their own classes and set their own fees.

The classes vary and are subject to change, according to the instructor and class sizes.
