MINDFUL MOVEMENT MONDAYS

MINDFUL MOVEMENT MONDAYS

Ray is leading a mindful movement series (two of them actually). It will proved time for walking and sitting practice as well as teaching you a very simple tai chi set. Its called the 10-Form Set and its a snap to learn in the three sessions we provide.
 
Sessions are
Mondays  5.30-7.00 pm
WBCHC Site
20 Robertson Dr.
BEACHBURG
 
The sessions are free and in two separate series, 1=Oct 23, 30, Nov 7; 2= Nov 22,29 and Dec 05

I have scheduled it for two sets of evenings. If you would prefer a morning group, let me know and, if we have a committed group of 4 people, I will add a Monday morning series as well.

I’d appreciate your passing this information to anyone who may be interested in either the movement series.
