Sunrise Tai Chi @ H.H. Biddle House (in Conference House Park)

Spread the love

Tai Chi focuses the mind while training the body — meditation through movement. Once learned, it can be maintained easily as a healthy life-long practice, easily adapted to your abilities and/or limitations. Due to continuous movements, especially shifting body weight from one leg to another, Tai Chi delivers countless benefits, including increased strength, conditioning, balance, coordination, flexibility, stamina, range of motion, bone density, joint lubrication, mind/body connection; and more confidence, peace of mind thru-out the day, improved sleep at night. Note that this is the oldest original Chen-Style Tai Chi, taught by traditional instruction, where each student learns at their own pace and builds up their knowledge bit-by-bit.

The show features projects and opportunities connected to the council as well as informing the community about all the programs SI Arts offers. The show highlights past grantee projects along with informing people about upcoming grantee projects they can experience in their own neighborhoods. Through interviews with artists/creators/makers the show explores the greatest benefits of exercising creativity. The expression of creative ideas and how that expression can lead to facing the fear of failure, building self-worth, and seeing the world differently.
