 Lecture on Acupuncture

 Cancelled - New Date and Time to be Announced

​Dr. Jennifer Balfour offers the traditional Chinese Acupuncture that offers pain management and restores both wellness in body and spirit. Here is a brief introduction that will describe the excellent presentation that Dr. Balfour will give Hamilton House members. "All Acupuncturists have a solid grasp of Western medicine, but I think Jen's Ph.d in Epidemiology brings something extra to the table. Jen is a firm and grounded individual who's beloved by her patients. Some of them even track me down in public places to sing her praises."

​  Introduction to Yang Snake Style Tai Chi
  Tuesdays at 10:00 am   

The Yang Snake Style is a dynamic tai chi method that mobilizes the spine while stretching and strengthening the core body muscles. Practicing this ancient martial art increases strength, balance, flexibility, vitality, peace of mind, and martial skill.

Snake style tai chi uses core body strength to initiate movement. Through discussion and practice, students will learn the principles of snake style movement, learning stretching exercises to help create the strength and flexibility needed to create this movement, and be introduced to the tai chi form. For in depth instruction, beginners arrive at 9:30. At 10:30 all levels practice stretching exercises and the tai chi form together. Please wear loose clothing and flat shoes.

If you are interested in joining TaiChi as a beginner, Ida will meet with you one half hour before the regular scheduled class. Please notify us one week before the class.

Ida Schmulowitz has been practicing Yang Style Tai Chi since 1984. She has been studying Yang Snake Style since 2005 with Bao Tak Fai (Master Robert Boyd of Burlington,Vt. ) and is a certified Snake Style instructor. Please register: 831-1800
