Reiki Circles are designed for any person interested in Reiki to participate.

Seamless Movement – Tai Chi For Wellness
Movement is vital to wellness. Practice of basic movement can and will improve balance, range of motion and overall wellbeing. Tai Chi and QiGong are two Asian movement practices that improve wellness. Usually choreographed into a form (series of movements), the result benefits the entire body and mind. The pace of each movement requires discipline of very slow movement coordinated with the breath. There are many studies illustrating the benefits of Tai Chi/Qigong for overall wellness.
Seamless Movement (Tai Chi For Wellness), taught by Beth Blair, is a blending of Tai Chi, QiGong, somatic practices and patterning to improve activities of daily living. By practicing in a friendly community without the pressure of “doing it right”, participants will benefit simply by being in the room. Each person practices from where they are on that given day. Chairs are used, not only for those that cannot stand for long periods of time, but to bring practical use of movement. Do not discount movements practiced from a seated positon, this bring different challenges, strength and balance. Laughter, encouragement and community are the center of each class. Participants are encouraged to challenge themselves once they get familiar with these basic moves. Usually the challenge is in slowing down. The slower you go the harder it is. This is a process that will improve over time. The use of different movements on the left and right sides of the body help with brain function and quieting the busy mind. Generally, moves are taken for the Shibashi 18 QiGong form, 5 Animal Frolic, 8 Piece Brocade and Meridian Qigong. In this format, all fitness/wellness levels can participate and benefit.
