Tuesday: Tai Chi

Dates
Display dates: 
Spring 2020

Tai chi is an ancient Chinese tradition—a series of very specific integrated postures in fluid sequence—that today is practiced as a graceful form of exercise. These movements are low impact and, unlike most acts of everyday living, can challenge balance, strength, and focus as participants strive for unity and harmonious connections. Among the common benefits of Tai Chi are increased range of motion, improved sleep patterns, reduced anxiety, and better self-awareness.

About the instructor

Tim Winecoff is a resident of the High Country since 1981. Formally trained in visual and fine arts at UNCG, with emphasis on painting and printmaking, he continues to manifest the fundamentals of this study in diverse ways. Over the last 20 years Tim has focused on living arts; primarily studying, cultivating and sharing the nurturing characteristics of Taiji as body movement therapy. Wishing that his inclination had been initiated 20 years sooner he is enthusiastic about the continuing opportunity of introducing this beneficial practice at a collegiate level.
