Laura Elliott of Sylva, will facilitate a free Tai Chi class at the Jackson County Public Library in Sylva on Thursday, July 24, at 7 p.m. The class will be held in the Community Room.
The form of Tai Chi that Elliott will teach is called Tai Chi Chih, which involves a series of distinct, repetitive movements that can be easier to learn than the more traditional form that is more of a continual dance of movements. Appropriate for people of all ages, it is a gentle practice designed to improve the flow of energy within the body.
As a holistic therapist and facilitator of wellness workshops, Elliott has been practicing energy medicine and the oriental exercises of Tai Chi and Qigong for over 15 years and is a certified Healing Touch practitioner.
