Tai Chi for Arthritis with Jean Woodall
Wednesdays, 11:45am-1:00pm, March 5-April 23

This form of Sun Style Tai Chi was tailored for the Arthritis Foundation to be beneficial to all body joints. A higher stance makes it accessible for all ages and helps increase balance, strength, flexibility, breathing, correct body posture and a peaceful state of mind.

  • Tai Chi Stretches the Mind and the Muscles: Through the slow and steady movements of Tai Chi, an arthritis sufferer will gain increased flexibility and range of motion in otherwise stiffening joints and limbs.
  • Gentle Movements: The gentle movements that are key to proper Tai Chi practice help to provide people with arthritis a non-impact way to stay fit and healthy.
  • Healing Energy and Balance: The range of motions needed for Tai Chi helps people with arthritis to slowly challenge stiff muscles and improve their overall body tone and posture. Balance is another big part of Tai Chi.
  • Moving Meditation: During Tai Chi, people concentrate on their breathing while they move energy into and around their bodies. This is particularly good for arthritis sufferers as it helps them to quiet their fears, pain and negative thinking.

Jean WoodallStudies have shown that many who participate in three months of Tai Chi from the Arthritis Foundation enjoy reduced pain, improved balance and function, better sleep, increased energy, and an improved outlook.

Jean Woodall has been teaching this Sun Style Tai Chi since 2009. Her background as a certified Skinner Releasing teacher and a former karate student inform the clarity and refinement Jean brings to her teaching. Her 35 year career as a licensed massage therapist, give her greater understanding and passion for this practice as a healing art. Jean, also, loves to focus on the beauty and delight of moving almost effortlessly.
