Tai Chi March 12th!
February 20, 2016
The next Memory Cafe is on Saturday, March 12th, with Ellie Hayes teaching Tai Chi . Ellie Hayes has been learning and sharing Tai Chi since 1974, primarily Hwa Yu Tai Chi (known also by the lineage name Liuhebafa) as taught by Master John Chung Li. Since 2011, she has also offered instruction in the Tai Chi for Health forms developed by Dr. Paul Lam MD of Australia.
"Qigong and Tai Chi are now recognized by the U.S. National Institute of Health’s Office of Alternative Medicine as an important method of Alternative Health Care. Over 75 percent of traditional medical schools in the USA now have training in natural, complimentary medicine and some medical schools have set up departments to research these styles.
Did you know that Tai Chi is the most popular form of exercise on the earth? It is no longer just a Chinese phenomena. It is rapidly spreading throughout the world. It is more popular now than ever before because the millions of people who practice it are living a more active life than those who don’t. As a result, many Western doctors are now recommending it to their patients, especially the elderly. "
