Join us in person for Tai Chi and Breath Work on Wednesday, August 17 at 4 PM.

Looking for a way to reduce stress and connect with your body? Tai chi is a gentle form of exercise practiced for thousands of years involving a series of movements performed in a slow, focused way. Join Tai Chi Instructor Alan Zemel to learn the ancient practice of tai chi and breath work that will empower you to:

  • Lower your blood pressure at will.
  • Improve your balance and reflexes through increased proprioception.
  • Control your oxygen and carbon dioxide balance as well as your blood PH through breath work.
  • Purposely move lymphatic fluid through your system improving immune response.
  • Increase range of motion.
  • Develop a practice that provides an overall sense of calm in your life.

By participating in this program, you can expect to also learn:

  • that we each can activate our “healer within response.”
  • simple ageless practices that can teach us to live a calm and relaxed life.
  • how to take your body from stress response to relaxation response instantly.

This program is presented by Alan Zemel and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation in partnership with the Crosby Wellness Center at the Center for Health & Wellbeing.
