Tai Chi, Chi Kung, Gentle Yoga classes offered at Show Low Senior Center

Personal trainer and fitness instructor Violet Borens is again conducting Tai Chi, Chi Kung and Gentle Yoga classes every Tuesday and Thursday through the summer at the Show Low Senior Center, located at 301 E. McNeil.

Class dates for the Second Session are: July 18, 23, 25, 30 and Aug. 6, 8, 13, 15, 20 and 22 (closed Thursday, Aug. 1).

Beginning Tai Chi starts at 1 p.m. each day. This is an ancient Chinese system designed to promote optimal health. It increases strength and tone, muscle endurance and bone density, improves core stability, balance, coordination and helps maintain good posture.

Chi Kung class begins at 1:45 each day. Chi Kung is in essence energy efficiently flowing through the entire body. It awakens the flow of chi that channels life energy into the body for detoxifying, cleansing, healing and strengthening the internal organs — lung, heart, liver, kidney, spleen, gall bladder, bone marrow and digestive system.

Gentle Yoga class begins at 2:30 p.m. each day. Sunrise Yoga format creates a balanced flow of movements focusing on core and stabilizing techniques that unify body movements by coordinating breathing and relaxation.

The fee for either the Beginning Tai Chi or Chi Kung classes is $40 for 10 classes or $25 for 5 classes (walk-in fee is $7 per class), and for the Gentle Yoga class, the fee is $50 for 10 classes or $30 for five classes (walk-in fee is $7 per class).
