In this fun class, we bring Tai Chi to the pool! Aqua Tai Chi is essentially Tai Chi, a land based art consisting of very slow, controlled sequences of movements, adapted to the water. Our therapy pool features a salt water system, heated to 92 degrees. Movements will be slow, gentle, controlled, and repetitive, focusing on tranquility rather than precision and rigidity. Classes usually last one hour. Perfect for maintaining and improving balance, recovering from injury, and balancing mind and body to relieve stress. Instructor: Barbara Anne Cookson is a Health and Wellness Coach, Licensed Massage Therapist, Motivational Speaker, and Certified Begin With BreathTai Chi Instructor
