Reduce Stress with Free Tai Chi Class Downtown on April 15
Louisville, Ky. (April 8, 2015)— The KentuckyOne Health Healthy Lifestyle Center downtown invites the public to de-stress during lunch with a free Tai Chi class on Wednesday, April 15, 2015 at noon at 400 West Market Plaza (across from the Kentucky Convention Center).
Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese discipline that involves slow, deliberate, meditative body movements that facilitate relaxation and promote feelings of peace and calmness. Tai Chi is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It doesn’t require any equipment or special clothing and can be done anywhere, anytime.
Tai Chi instructor Lloyd Kelly will lead the free class. Kelly, who is certified by the Centers for Disease Control and the Arthritis Foundation, has practiced the art of Tai Chi his entire life and has studied with the Masters in the United States and China.
Tai Chi improves balance, helps lower blood pressure, reduces tension and stress, aids in reducing chronic pain, improves strength and endurance, increases flexibility and improves aerobic capacity.
