Tai Chi is an ancient art involving postures, breathing, and movements to enhance the flow of energy, or chi, throughout and around the body. It is based on the concepts of yin and yang, the dynamic balancing of opposites, and the rhythms of the natural world. Tai chi is a mind-body practice originally developed as a martial art, and now widely practiced for its many health and wellness benefits.
Kathryn Demers is a certified tai chi and qi gong instructor. She has studied tai chi and qi gong with Master Fang Chih-Lee for several years. She teaches Yang style, with the focus on enhancing health and wellness through the mind-body connection. With a diverse background in education, movement-based learning and energy modalities, Kathryn enjoys teaching the art and science of tai chi. She offers classes at several locations in the area.
“Tai Chi and Qi Gong are gentle on the body, calming to the mind, and good for the spirit,” says Demers. “I love the many health benefits of tai chi and qi gong and am glad to have the opportunity to share this practice with others.”
