VOORHEES, NJ (April 4, 2018) – Gear up for gentle yoga and tai chi beginning mid-April. Dress comfortably and bring a water bottle and mat, as you ease your mind through spring and summer sessions.
Gentle yoga is great for beginners, as it is considered less intense than traditional yoga. Gentle yoga evokes a minimalistic, non-strenuous atmosphere while the mind relaxes and the body reduces stress. Gentle yoga sessions are $48, or $4 per class, and take place Tuesdays and Thursdays, April 17-May 24, June 5-July 19 and July 24-August 30, from 2:30-3:30 p.m., at Kennedy Fitness & Wellness – Mullica Hill (167 Bridgeton Pike, Mullica Hill, NJ).
Tai chi is a Chinese slow-motion exercise designed to promote good health and longevity by circulating internal energy, or “chi.” The $48, eight-class Tai chi session meets Tuesdays at 3 p.m., from April 24-June 12, at Dances By Diane (Westville Square, 201 Broadway, Westville, NJ).
Gentle yoga and tai chi sessions are sponsored by Jefferson Health - New Jersey’s PrimeTime, a free health and wellness program for active older adults in South Jersey. All community members are invited and do not need Kennedy Fitness & Wellness memberships to attend.
For information regarding the sessions, or to register, visit www.KennedyIsJefferson.org/classes, or call 1-800-522-1965.
