T'ai Chi Program
T’ai Chi is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits. Medical research has found evidence that t’ai chi is helpful for improving balance and for general psychological health.
Under the generous pro bono instruction of Peter Guenther, People for Palmer Park is excited to bring this FREE class back to the Palmer Park community for its third year.
Peter teaches two sessions starting May 10 and going through September 13. Come dressed to move! All levels welcome to join us.
To get the most out of this practice, try to attend the entire session rather than a single class.
SCHEDULE (May 10-September 13, 2016):
TIME: Tuesdays, 7:00-8:00pm
Session A: 5/10 - 7/5 (9 weeks)
Session B: 7/19 - 9/13 (9 weeks)
You can start at the beginning of any one -- you don't have to do the previous 9 week session to do the next one. We hope you will take advantage of this free class with many physical and mental health benefits!
Be sure to connect with People for Palmer Park on Facebook. Peter creates a new "Event" page for each class and provides weather/cancellation updates!
* NEW THIS YEAR! TEXT ALERTS! *
Weather cancellations and instructor messages sent directly to your phone.
Easy instructions on how to sign up here!
LOCATION: Northwest corner of Palmer Park at Ponchartrain and 7 Mile, just west of the Police Station.

Here’s an article about the lineage of the version of taijiquan (T’ai Chi) we practice: http://ymaa.com/articles/ymaa-taijiquan-lineage.
Our teacher, Peter, learned this form from several students of Dr. Yang, both locally and in Boston, including a couple seminars with Dr. Yang himself.
