Beginning on Saturday, July 7, 2012 and continuing until August 4, 2012, the El Paso Museum of History will offer classes in Tai Chi taught by Hsio-Ying Hines. Enjoy your summer in the cool air conditioned air of the museum as you relax with a centuries old Chinese art. Hours for Tai Chi will be 10 to 11 a.m.
If you haven’t been to the museum to take Tai Chi, here is your chance to start. The movements are slow and easy and you can learn very quickly. Western scientists have established that Tai Chi and Qi-Gong can reduce hypertension, help diabetes and stress management, and ease arthritis.
Tai Chi works well for people who have limited movement. Students will also learn more advanced Yang style movements, use of the fan and explore all five major styles of Tai Chi.
Hsio-Ying Hines has been teaching Tai-chi since 1999 and at the Museum since 2009. In 2004, her students got gold medals from the International Wushu kung fu Championships at the National level of competition. According to her students, she is very patient and makes you feel comfortable from the first lesson on. Ms. Hines will add interesting anecdotes of Chinese history as she teaches you the various movements.
Loose, comfortable clothing and athletic shoes are highly recommended for the class. Class size is limited to 20, so register early. Program fee: $20.00 for non-members/$10.00 for members for the five week course.
