Join the Office of the Chaplain for Tai Chi every Monday and Thursday at 12pm. The class will be held on Hearn Plaza in front of Wait Chapel. Sometimes called “meditation in motion,” a Tai Chi workout is a series of soft, flowing movements choreographed into a slow routine. By improving the mind-body-spirit connection, Tai Chi brings the yin and yang of a person back into natural harmony, exercising emotions just as it does the muscles. For more information, contact K. Monet Rice, email@example.com, 336-758-4843.
