Tai Chi Mornings  (ON SITE)

Tai Chi Mornings (ON SITE)

Monday, October 26, 2020 | 8:30-9:30am

Stimulate your immune system, lower your blood pressure, decrease your stress and improve your balance: That’s not a bad scorecard for one hour’s worth of exercise each day! If you can walk, you can play. Visitors are welcome to try it out! Taught by Bryan McKenzie. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 8:45am-9:45am - beginners should start on a Monday.

Background The Center has offered Tai Ji (an alternate spelling of Tai Chi) for 14 years. The teaching method allows participants to learn health aspects of the discipline, its connection to Chinese medical theory, meditation techniques for relaxation and to bolster the immune system, and even self-defense techniques. The system is based on the Three Emperors style of martial arts taught by Wang Zhenhua, a former coach at Beijing University. The Center’s program was initiated by Mr. Wang’s student, John Alton, Charlottesville resident and someone recognized by the Chinese government as an expert in Chinese health practices. Lei Xilai, an instructor who came to the states from the Beijing area, taught advanced classes at The Center and introduced new forms to the class. The current instructor, Bryan McKenzie, has taught for the past 12 years. Bryan is a student of Mr. Lei and Mr. Alton. Bryan leads the TaiJi group with a clear mind, with firm hands and a warm heart, and above all with gentle words. He has a great sense of humor and no pretense at all.

About the Exercise The exercise is simple -- in a series of movements based on a Taoist martial art, participants slowly relearn how to balance, purposefully shifting weight from side to side and then increasing the difficulty of the movements. The slow movements not only redefine balance, but also provide a workout similar to the old Charles Atlas "dynamic tension" exercises for muscle development. Participants currently range in age from 50 to 94 and allowances are made for personal stamina, strength, medical history, and ability. The atmosphere is relaxed and easy-going; participants running late for class are welcome to join in whenever they arrive.

Hiking-Monday

Hiking-Monday

Monday, October 26, 2020 | 9:00-3:00pm

The Center hiking group hikes on Mondays and Wednesdays. We hike in many different areas, including in Shenandoah National Park, along the Blue Ridge Parkway and around Charlottesville. Hikes are chosen by the hike leaders and range in length from  approximately 6-7 miles on Mondays and 6-10 miles on Wednesdays. Total elevation gain can range between 600 to 2500 feet.

Please dress appropriately for hiking in the mountains, including rain gear, and hiking shoes or boots. Trekking poles are highly recommended and traction devices for boots may be necessary in winter. Bring lunch, snacks, 2-3 liters of water, a hat, and wear layers. Bug spray and sunscreen are a must in summer. Dogs are not allowed.

During this time of Covid, some of our procedures are very different.  We are only having nine hikers plus the hike leader on every hike. This is for the safety of everyone. Physical distancing is practiced throughout the day. We have a hikers email google group. The hike leaders send out emails about the hikes on Fridays for the Monday hikes and Sundays for the Wednesday hikes. Sign up is on a first come first serve basis. There is no carpooling and everyone is responsible for meeting at the trailheads. We meet at the trailheads at 9:00 am. This time may change in winter. Directions are included in the hike emails.  

We encourage a spirit of camaraderie and welcome new hikers to try it out. Due to the smaller groups during the pandemic, hikers must be Center members in good standing.

Please keep in mind that there are inherent risks in hiking, as in any vigorous activity. We always take care of each other but everyone is responsible for their own safety. Since hiking is such a vigorous activity, we do send a more detailed description of our hiking group and the expectations to all new hikers.

Ageless Grace® class is now available via Zoom! To join, please contact Sheila Queen at squeen125@gmail.com

A new and fun way to move that includes a chair (seated dancing; standing is optional)! great music from 40's big bands to today’s music, creativity and a sense of humor! A mind-body program designed by fitness specialists to stimulate the whole body-head to toe- as you listen, recall, move and sing along with hit tunes, promoting a sense of well-being and joy.

What makes this program more interesting and enriching is that Ageless Grace® is both a body and brain exercise. Ageless Grace® is based on the science of neuroplasticity: the ability of the brain and nervous system to change its structure and function, and to continue to change it throughout our lives, to keep us youthful and vital.

Each of the 21 exercise tools emphasizes a different technique, such as joint mobility, spinal flexibility, right-left brain coordination, kinesthetic learning, cognitive function, systemic health, balance, self-esteem, confidence and playfulness.

These classes are led by Sheila Queen, Certified Educator.

"In this brief talk and mini-poetry reading I will share a few of my ancestral family stories and the poems inspired by them. All of my grandparents immigrated from Italy in the early 1900s. The stories of their struggles and their successes were frequently shared around our family table. Food is central to the Italian way of life. Numerous happy hours have been spent in the kitchen with my grandmother, my mother, my older sister and now, my daughters. Planning meals, preparing them and reliving the stories of our ancestors. I hope to share a bit of the flavor of my ancestry with you through family story and poetry. There’s a place for you at the table, andiamo!"
