Introduction to T’ai Chi Chuan with Christopher Plummer

Mar 02, 2017 10:05AM
Known especially for slow, continuous movements and its gentle flow of energy, the ancient Chinese study of T’ai Chi is practiced as a martial art, exercise and moving meditation by people of all ages and physical abilities. On Saturday, March 18, from 1 to 2:30pm, this 90-minute introduction to principles and postures will provide students with a basic foundation in T’ai Chi Chuan. Hosted by Christopher Plummer, a T’ai Chi practitioner at Yoga Central since 2004, the course will introduce the fundamental stances, principles of weight shift, movement, stepping and several of the postures of the Yang “short” form.

Many studies of western medicine confirm that T’ai Chi is a beneficial tool for stress relief, balance, relaxation and body awareness.  It is often recommended for those with arthritis, Parkinson’s, and other diseases that affect balance and movement.

This is not a “sit and listen” program! The emphasis will be on movement, and students will participate in several Qi Gong breathing exercises. The cost for the class is $25. Please preregister by March 15 and wear loose, comfortable clothing to the workshop.

Christopher Plummer has studied T’ai Chi Chuan since 1981. A respected teacher in corporate fitness programs at Merck, Pfizer and Sanofi-Aventis, he has taught T’ai Chi for the Jointure Adult Education program in Raritan and is affiliated with Yoga Central and Cornerstone Clubs of Bucks County, PA.

Location: Yoga Central, 953 Route. 202 North, Branchburg. For more information, call 908-707-0759 or visit YogaCentralNJ.com. See ad on page 38.
