Celebrate the New Year with a New Class!!!
Try Tai Chi for Geeks...for Free!!!
Tai Chi is frequently described as “meditation in movement.”
It is a gentle, no-contact martial art that promotes well-being and harmony of body and mind. Tai chi alleviates stress, increases energy, promotes flexibility, improves strength, increases mobility and balance, and improves mood.
Come and check out this new class designed for all ages, shapes, sizes, and conditions, Taught by fellow Geek Physique member, Sherry Merriam!
We will study the Sun 41 form, developed from traditional Sun style tai chi for people with chronic pain or limited mobility and follows the Arthritis Foundation tai chi program. The form can even be adapted to be done from a seated position.
This course is low-impact enough for beginners and those with limited mobility, but students of more advanced fitness levels are welcomed to participate and will be offered more challenging options to keep their practice interesting and beneficial.
Students 12 years of age and up are welcome to participate, but anyone under 18 must have an adult guardian present. Please wear comfortable clothing and flat-soled shoes (walking or most slip-on shoes are fine, No boots or heavy heels). Bring a water bottle and your Geekiness!
About the instructor:
Sherry L.M. Merriam, MA
Many martial arts instructors take pride in their training lineage, but few can proudly make this claim: Sherry is two degrees of separation from Fong Ha, the tai chi master who was the inspiration for Master Yoda. (Your registration fee will help Sherry train with Fong Ha next summer!)
Sherry is certified by the Arthritis Foundation to teach tai chi to people with arthritis and other chronic conditions in a supportive, compassionate environment, and she has both personal and professional experience managing physical disability and chronic illness.
When she is not throwing Force Punches, Sherry practices counseling and psychotherapy. She specializes in working with people who are geeky, kinky, poly, and/or Pagan. http://www.sherrymerriamcounseling.com/
