Tai Chi continues during Carnaval

Recent medical research shows how exercise reverses aging at the cellular level (as a molecular biologist, I just had to share this article: https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/study-reveals-how-exercise-turns-back-the-clock-in-aging-muscles). Tai Chi is a great way to get the exercise your body craves. It is particularly excellent for developing lower body strength and flexibility and for improving your balance.

Our regular, ongoing Tai Chi practice incorporates warm-up exercises, Qi Gong routines, and the fundamental movements of the 18 Form. We welcome all ages and all levels from absolute novice to intermediate. You can join at any time and at any level; there is no class start date or end date.

We will continue our practice during Carnaval week, meeting this Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30 – 10:45 AM in the northeast corner of Parque de la Madre under the shade of the large trees (closest to Av 12 de Abril and the Tomebamba River). If it is actively raining or the ground is too wet, we will meet under the rings of the planetarium. Practice is led by Wayne and Sandra Materi in English. Classes are free, but we welcome drop-in donations of $2.
