Free tai chi classes offered
The Taoist Tai Chi Society of the USA, Inc., a nonprofit charitable volunteer organization dedicated to bringing the healing benefits of tai chi to the Western world, will start three new beginner classes in Sonoma in February.
The public is invited to free introductory classes on Saturday, Feb. 2, from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at Vintage House senior center, 264 First St. E.
Free introductory classes will also be held on Tuesday, Feb. 5, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.; and Thursday, Feb. 7, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Sonoma Community Center, 276 E. Napa St., in room 213.
Janet Nusbaum, who has been practicing for two-and-a-half-years, said, “Tai chi has given me more strength, agility and balance. And a lot of minor aches and pains have just disappeared, including carpal tunnel kind of symptoms, which is fabulous and makes working much easier.”
Volunteer instructors teach in a spirit of compassion and service to others. All have been carefully trained and nationally accredited.
For more information or to pre-register, students may email email@example.com or call Irv Kirschbaum at 935-6455. Introductory classes are free with no obligation to join the society.
