Town Square is partnering with Tai Chi instructor Jan Saecker to offer introductory Tai Chi classes for a drop-in fee of $1 at 429 Hill Street in Downtown Green Lake. Tai Chi will be offered on Thursdays, December 7, 14, 21 and 28 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
“Tai chi involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner accompanied by deep breathing,” said Green Lake Renewal’s Jorge Gutierrez. “It’s very low impact and puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it generally safe for all ages and fitness levels.”
Originally developed for self-defense, Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese tradition that is practiced as a graceful form of exercise today. No special clothing is needed, but comfortable shoes and socks are encouraged. More classes will become available after gauging the participants’ interest level.
