Tai Chi Starting November 11 at Ebenezer Tower

Phillips Wellness 50+ invites you to participate in Tai Chi sessions with master trainer, Richard Johnson, starting November 11 at Ebenezer Tower. The sessions are geared to people of all abilities, and everyone is welcome.

Tai Chi, an ancient Chinese tradition, is a form of exercise that uses slow, deliberate movements. Rather than using muscle tension, Tai Chi focuses on coordination, relaxation and deep breathing. With its gentle stretching and low impact, it has become a sought after technique for older people to maintain good health. It can be practiced any time, anywhere and by anyone. No equipment or special space is needed.

Benefits of Tai Chi may include:

  • Improved heart function
  • Increased energy and stamina
  • Improved stress management
  • Improved muscle strength
  • Mental calm and clarity
  • Better balance and flexibility to prevent falls

Join us for six Tai Chi sessions: Tuesdays from 5:30 to 6:30 PM from November 11 through December 12 at Ebenezer Tower, 2523 Portland Ave. S., Minneapolis, MN 55404.

These sessions are open to the public but non-Ebenezer residents please contact Donna Nordin at 612-741-5180 or dnordin2@comcast.net to let us know you are coming.

Our leader is Richard Johnson, a Tai Chi master with experience working with people at all levels of fitness. Richard also teaches Tai Chi in churches, health clubs and at Lifetime Fitness.

Phillips Wellness 50+ is an initiative to increase health and well-being, by and for people in the Phillips neighborhood.
