Tai Chi Classes Longboat Key, Florida
Tai Chi Flowing is dedicated to bringing Tai Chi classes and event information in the Sarasota, Bradenton and Longboat Key areas to you. Tai Chi Flowing Director Christine Killeen has served as a Senior Trainer with the Tai Chi for Health Institute assisting in teacher training workshops. She is also the President of the Tai Chi for Health “Community” a U.S. based national non-profit organization comprised of Tai Chi Instructors and Practitioners. It supports its members and helps promote the use of the Tai Chi for Health programs.
Christine Killeen teaches classes in Tai Chi for Energy, Tai Chi for Arthritis and Tai Chi for Back Pain (suitable for tai chi beginners) three of the health forms created by Dr. Paul Lam specifically to provide therapeutic back pain and arthritis therapy for arthritis and lower back pain sufferers. Studies are increasingly showing that Tai Chi Classes and practicing tai chi can be a useful component of an overall self care program for stress management and chronic pain therapy to reduce stress as well as address the chronic painful symptoms of fibromyalgia, arthritis, and lower back pain. In addition, long term studies are showing that Dr. Lam’s Health forms tend to improve balance and reduce stress, both essential components of any Fall Prevention program. All of the Health Forms combine safe, gentle movements and breath work together with qigong exercises, which promote the flow of qi, thus making them well suited for back pain and arthritis therapy as well as inclusion in a tai chi beginners class, and are appropriate for those wishing to reduce arthritic and back pain issues. Christine also teaches Yang and Sun tai chi forms which are adapted to the individual limits of students to promote safety while encouraging mastery.
Whether you are best suited for a tai chi beginners class, or you’re an individual looking for another way to deal with stress reduction and the chronic pain issues associated with arthritis or lower back problems, or a Senior wanting to improve and strengthen balance to prevent falls, Tai Chi Flowing wants to connect your needs to Tai Chi classes and events that will help you to achieve your goals.
