Tai Chi

Tai Chi

Friday, May 20, 2022 | 8:30am-9:30am

Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, 8:30am-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. 

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.

Friday, May 20, 2022 | 8:30am-9:30am

Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays 8:30am-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.

Hiking-Monday (Offsite)

Hiking-Monday (Offsite)

Monday, May 23, 2022 | 9:00am-3:00pm

Mondays, 9:00am-3:00pm  
We hike Mondays and Wednesdays all year long, in many different areas, including around Charlottesville, Shenandoah National Park, and along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The hikes can range in length from 5-10 miles with a total elevation gain from 500 to 2500 feet. Our hikes are rated from moderate to strenuous. This is based on the length of the hike, the amount of total elevation gain, and the terrain, which can often include steep ascents/ descents on rocky, uneven ground and stream crossings over slippery rocks. Our hikes are typically not not suited for beginner hikers.

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. Hikes are smoke free, pets are not allowed, and we follow the “leave no trace” rule.

In this Post pandemic time we are still having sign ups for hikes. We take 14 hikers plus the leader on each hike. We hope that all participants are vaccinated. If not, we ask that you follow social distancing and mask requirements, We have a hiker email google group. The hike leaders send out emails about the hikes on Fridays at 5:00 pm for the Monday hikes, and Sundays at 5:00 pm for the Wednesday hikes. Sign up is on a first come, first serve basis. We do not carpool from The Center to the trailheads. Hikers are encouraged to set up carpools with other hikers if possible. The hike leader sends out the names of the hikers on each hike. We meet at the trailheads at 9:30 am and 9:00 am on Wednesdays from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
Directions to the trailheads are included in the emails.

If you are hiking with us for the first time, please contact the hike leader directly, to discuss your hiking experience and to ensure your readiness and suitability for the hike. We want to ensure the safety of all our hikers. We encourage a spirit of camaraderie and welcome new hikers to try our group out. Since we are an associated program with The Center, 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 ultimately you are responsible for your own safety.
If you would like to be put on our email list or have further questions please contact AnneColgate

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!

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 Post pandemic time we are still having sign ups for hikes. We take 14 hikers plus the leader on each hike. We hope that all participants are vaccinated. If not, we ask that you follow
social distancing and mask requirements, We have a hiker email google group. The hike leaders send out emails about the hikes on Fridays at 5:00 pm for the Monday hikes, and Sundays at 5:00 pm for the Wednesday hikes. Sign up is on a first come, first serve basis. We do not carpool from The Center to the trailheads. Hikers are encouraged to set up carpools with other
hikers if possible. The hike leader sends out the names of the hikers on each hike. We meet at the trailheads at 9:30 am and 9:00 am on Wednesdays from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
Directions to the trailheads are included in the emails.

If you are hiking with us for the first time, please contact the hike leader directly, to discuss your hiking experience and to ensure your readiness and suitability for the hike. We want to ensure the safety of all our hikers. We encourage a spirit of camaraderie and welcome new hikers to try our group out. Since we are an associated program with The Center, 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 ultimately you are responsible for your own safety.
If you would like to be put on our email list or have further questions please contact Anne Colgate

A Deep Dive Into Sleep

A Deep Dive Into Sleep

Wednesday, May 25, 2022 | 1:00pm-2:00pm

What’s the deal with sleep? What happens when we don’t get enough sleep or good enough sleep? What do medications that ‘help’ us sleep actually do? How can we sleep better? Sleep rejuvenates the cells in your body, gives brain cells a chance to repair themselves, helps wash away toxins that build up during the day, and activates neuronal connections that might otherwise deteriorate due to inactivity. Sleep is also necessary if you want to have glowing skin, high energy, a sunny mood, excellent health and stable weight. Improving brain function requires getting a sufficient amount of restorative sleep each night to refill our ‘gas tanks’ for the next day's activities. Without it, our attention and concentration slips, working memory doesn’t work so well and processing speed slows. Join Jessica Eure, LPC, BCN to learn about the architecture of sleep, it's functions and what happens when we don't get enough. Lots of fun facts promised!
