We are the fun, social club of Sun Lakes (for residents over 40). We are all about having fun and meeting new friends.  | SUN LAKES SPLASH | October 2013 40s 50s+ Club—the fun social club Tai Chi is “Medicine in motion”

Kim Kubsch Tai Chi is a self-paced system of gentle

physical exercise and stretching through a series of movements that continually fl ow. It is often referred to as “meditation in motion.” To some, like Mayo Clinic and Harvard Medical School, it often called “medicine in motion!” Regardless

of your age, ability or

physical challenge, I will teach you some simple healing techniques using smooth, slow natural movements. Through these movements, you can use to energize yourself,

de-stress, reduce pain or

promote healing. Tai Chi training develops skills that can be applied to everything you do. By improving physical ability you can learn how to deeply relax - getting rid of tension caused by stress and anxiety. Also, by smoothing out and directing your energy you can speed healing. In short, Tai Chi teaches the body how to feel better. In addition to being a certifi ed Tai Chi
