Tai Chi For Health
Tai Chi originated in ancient China and today over 300 million people worldwide practice it primarily for its health benefits. Tai Chi consists of slow, gentle, circular movements and slow, deep breathing that aids in concentration and relaxation. Some of the health benefits of the ongoing practice of Tai Chi include: increased flexibility and muscle strength, improved balance and posture and the integration of the mind and body. Dr. Paul Lam and a panel of Tai Chi and medical experts developed the Tai Chi for Health programs and people of almost any age or physical condition find that Tai Chi is fun and easy to learn. Two separate classes are offered at the Community Center. Basic moves and concepts are introduced and practiced in the beginner Tai Chi class and is recommended for those new to Tai Chi. The regular on-going class practices several different forms as well as concentration on integrating essential principals and in-depth concepts. More information on the benefits of Tai Chi for Heath programs and Dr. Paul Lam's monthly newsletter is available at www.taichiproductions.com.

Joyful Movement for Body, Mind and Spirit
The ancient art of Belly Dance has been used throughout the ages in the Near East as a rite of passage for females. The movements are natural to the female body and help tone and strengthen the muscles. The exotic music can lift one's spirits, thereby encouraging movement. When combined with the graceful motions of the body, this creates a sense of beauty and well being, thus enhancing mental and physical health. Dance is a natural stress reliever.
